Personal Data

Arthur Greene Everett was born on August 14, 1855, in Roxbury, the son of Thomas Blake Everett and his wife, Sarah Elizabeth Greene (daughter of Benjamin Greene).

He married on September 6, 1886, in Boston, to Georgiana F. Hughes (b. 1858-1859 in Gloucester), daughter of George Hughes and his wife, Elizabeth.

Arthur Everett died in October of 1925.


Arthur Everett was educated at MIT.  He was an architect in the firm of Cabot and Chandler.  In 1888, when Francis Chandler withdrew from the partnership to become head of the MIT School of Architecture, Edward Cabot took him and Samuel Mead, also a member of the staff, as partners, forming Cabot, Everett, and Mead.

Cabot retired the same year, but the firm remained Cabot, Everett, and Mead until his death in 1901, when it became Everett and Mead.

Walter Kilham (Boston After Bulfinch) notes that the firm designed “numerous country houses in the rambling and picturesque style of the period.”  It also designed various public buildings, including the hospital of Johns Hopkins University (1889) in Baltimore and Arlington Public Library (1892).

Everett also served as Boston’s Building Commissioner from 1909 to 1914.
