ORIGINATION:Taylor, Crombie, 1914-1999.
ACQUISITION INFORMATION:The Crombie Taylor Papers were the gift of Hope Taylor, Victoria Taylor, Beth Taylor Fergon and John Taylor in 2010.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH:
Charles Crombie Taylor was born in Oakmont, PA, on February 13, 1914, one of three children of John Lloyd Taylor and Florence Crombie Taylor. Taylor received his B.S. in Architecture from Penn State University in 1936 and his MFA from Princeton University in 1938. From 1938 to 1941 he was an instructor in the Architecture Department of the Georgia Institute of Technology, after which he returned to Pittsburgh to obtain his license to practice architecture.

In November of 1941, Taylor was hired by Laszlo Moholy-Nagy as Assistant Director of the Institute of Design in Chicago. After the merger of the Institute of Design with the Illinois Institute of Technology in 1951, Taylor served as the Institute's Director, guiding it through a tumultuous period of growth, until his resignation in 1955. While at IIT, Taylor won several competitions and began to design private residences in Chicago and the surrounding area. Significant projects from this period include the Dustin, Wenninger, Goldberg, Kearns and Tagge residences and the Hull House Uptown Center in Chicago. Taylor's architectural style followed Bauhaus ideals, using modest materials, clean lines, and integration with the environment.

In 1954, Taylor--who was an authority on Louis Sullivan's interiors--was asked by Roosevelt University to restore the Banquet Hall of the Auditorium Building, which had been repainted in 1910 and abandoned since 1944. Taylor undertook the formidable challenge of restoration, finishing the Banquet Hall, Ladies' Parlor and remainder of the building by 1967. Taylor's exemplary restoration of the Auditorium Building captured the public's interest and helped spur the burgeoning historical preservation movement.

In addition to supervising the Auditorium restoration process, Taylor also designed several traveling exhibitions, including "Louis Sullivan, Midwest Masterpieces", "The Rise of the Skyscraper", "The Crystal Palace" and "Systems of Stencil Ornament by Louis Sullivan". Taylor was interested in multi-media methods of teaching and transmitting information via his "mediated multiple image slide and film sequences", which he used extensively in his academic career and in his exhibitions and presentations.

In 1962, he returned to academia and became Associate Dean of the School of Architecture and Fine Arts at the University of Southern California (USC), attaining full professorship in 1972. While at USC, he remodeled the curriculum and established a Masters program in architecture, urban design and building science. He also introduced a Doctoral program in architecture through the new Building Institute under the direction of Konrad Wachsmann. He was made a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects in 1975.

After retirement, Taylor continued his work on restoration projects, including Sullivan's Van Allen Building in Clinton, IA, and a 17th century farmstead, Maiden Bridge, in Yorkshire, England. He died on May 24, 1999, in Santa Barbara, CA.
