Laurence Hall Fowler, Baltimore architect, was born in Catonsville MD, Sept. 5, 1876. He received the AB degree from The Johns Hopkins University in 1898 and the BS degree in architecture from Columbia in 1902.
Following a tour in Italy in 1904, Fowler was admitted to the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. He returned to Baltimore, and in 1907, opened his own architectural firm. Fowler's designs were chosen for several public buildings including the War Memorial building (1921, Baltimore) and the Hall of Records building, (1932, Annapolis, MD). Fowler's most distinguished work emerged after 1911 when he began designing private residences.
His association with the Roland Park Company and other builders in the city afforded him the opportunity to design houses and cottages, many of which are still standing. One of his lasting works is the re-design and renovation of parts of Evergreen House, the residence of Alice and John Work Garrett. Laurence Hall Fowler died in Baltimore in 1971.
