Chapman and Frazer

Chapman and Frazer was formed in March of 1891, a partnership of John Henry Chapman and Horace Southworth Frazer.  Chapman’s health failed in 1893 and he died in 1895, but the name of the firm remained Chapman and Frazer until Frazer’s death in 1931.

In his Houses of Boston’s Back Bay, Bainbridge Bunting describes Chapman and Frazer as “the Back Bay’s leading advocates of the late Medieval and earl Renaissance styles of England.”
