The architects of the firm of Lord and Hewlett were Austin Lord (1860-1922) and J. Monroe Hewlette (1868-1941). Lord was formerly employed by the well known firm McKim, Mead & White and was one of the firm's architects who worked on the Brooklyn Museum, as well as the building designs for Columbia University. Hewlette, a Brooklyn native, was educated at Polytechnic institute, Columbia University and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. Although executed by one of Hewlett's parters (Charles Basing), the concept for the fresco on the ceiling of Grand Central Terminal was based on cartoons Hewlett had created.
