F. Bryant The following list of projects is organized by year with the date given being the estimated year that design work began. Although most large projects have several sources to document Bryant’s involvement, I have provided only one for each commission . Where possible, I have cited original drawings, specifications, published renderings, or long newspaper descriptions. In only a few instances have I relied on the 1890 list of Bryant’s drawings assembled by his friend Henry Bailey. Since, in many cases, that list includes projects not designed by Bryant, or not built, I have generally not referred to it unless the building survives and there is reason to make a stylistic attribution. As with any list deriving from such varied sources, many attributions are subject to corrections or refinements. Gridley J. F.
