This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The son of portraitist John Pope (1821-1880), John Russell Pope became a distinguished architect who is said to perhaps be "the architect most responsible for carrying the Beaux Arts Style* of the classical revival period into 20th Century America.

Commissions included the Baltimore Museum of Art, Frick Collection in New York City, additions to the British and Tate Museums in London, and in Washington DC for the National Archives, National Gallery of Art and the Jefferson Memorial.  His assistants on the National Gallery and Jefferson Memorial were his partners, Otto Eggers and Daniel Higgins, and they finished work on those projects after Pope's death.

Pope was also a professor of architecture, teaching at Columbia University.  

He was raised in New York City and was a graduate of the City College of New York, and then spent two years in Europe, being the first member of the American Academy of Ar*t to earn a Prix de Rome Prize* to study in 1895 at the American Academy in Rome.  From 1897 to 1899, he was a student in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux Arts*.  In 1900 he returned to New York City and established his own architectural practice.  His recognition was extensive including being elected President of the American Academy in Rome in 1937, the year of his death.

David Dearinger, Editor, Painting and Sculpture in the Collection of the National Academy of Design
