Historical NoteReturn to Top

Auguste Noël was born in New York City and trained in architecture at the Beaux Arts school, Paris. He served his apprenticeship in New York, and set up his own office in 1920. He was later senior partner, with G. Macculloch Miller, in the firm of Noël and Miller, with a branch office in Newport, R. I. The firm was especially well known for its designs of stately residences, most of them on the East Coast. It also designed the Whitney Museum of American Art, the National Museum of Racing, Sara-toga, N.Y., and a number of public buildings at Newport, R. I. Plans for these are in the collection.
