From the guide to the Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin drawings., (Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library)

English architect Augustus Welby Pugin was born in London, the son of French draughtsman Augustus Charles Pugin. He studied architecture, and wrote several books on the subject, which influenced Victorian architecture and the later Arts and Crafts movement. He designed and built furniture, stained glass, jewelry, and theatre sets. As an architect, he designed schools, country houses, and, after his conversion to Roman Catholicism, numerous churches; he also collaborated on the Palace at Westminster. After his untimely death, his son, Edward Welby Pugin, worked to complete the unfinished projects.
