Claude Knox Howell is my Grandfather. I recently started a search of his of his work. Wonderful site, instantly discovering so much about him. Googled his name in Richmond Va. wonderful article about homes he has built here (I just moved to Richmond) . Wish I could photos of him, I only have two. He is buried in Richmond. I would like to visit all of the theatres he was involved with. Seems like he did a lot of restoration fire work. He was from Ohio, came to Richmond to work on a fire restoration job at the Jefferson Hotel, this is where he met his future wife. He let a very interesting life. He and Andrew Loyd Wright were friends as young men, was told that they roomed together in ‘Chicago. Thank you for the information and this site.
