Personal Data

Henry Watson Gore, Jr., was born on October 9, 1871, in Roxbury, the son of Henry Watson Gore and his wife, Louise Augusta Crafts (daughter of William Augustus Crafts).

He married on June 14, 1904, in Hingham, to Olive (Sarah) Litchfield (b. 16Aug1874 in Hingham; d. 1961 in Norwell), daughter of Leonard W. Litchfield and his wife, Mary M. Hanlen.

Henry Gore died on October 21, 1956, in Marshfield.


Henry Gore attended MIT.

He was a draftsman in Boston from the mid-1890s. In about 1902, he began practice as an architect in Braintree (where he lived with his parents). By 1905, he had opened a Boston office in partnership with Harry B. Hurd, as the firm of Hurd and Gore. They remained partners until about 1917.

Based on City Directory listings, it appears that Henry Gore did not practice between about 1920 and 1922. In 1923, he opened an office in Cambridge, and by 1924 he had opened a Boston office with Roscoe B. Whitten as the firm of Whitten and Gore. They remained partners until about 1926, when they each opened their own offices as sole practitioners.

Henry Gore continued to practice in Boston until about 1937, after which he appears to have retired.
