Philip Trammel Shutze Letter (SMC 43)
Philip Trammell Shutze was born in Columbus, Georgia on August 18, 1890. He received his B.S. in architecture from Georgia Tech in 1912 and then another B.S. in architecture from Columbia in 1913. In 1915 he won the Rome prize and sailed for Italy in the autumn of that year. He was housed in the Academy on the Gianiculum. The U.S. ambassador, Thomas Nelson Page, advised him to join the Italian Red Cross instead of returning home to enlist in World War I. He did so, eventually joining the American Red Cross and became a 1st lieutenant under Chester Aldrich of Chester Aldrich and Delano Architects. After the war he returned to work in Atlanta when he was involved in designing the Howard Theater, the Andrew Calhoun House and Rich's Department Store. He went back to Italy to complete his designs. When he returned to the U.S. he worked in New York for a while, and then returned to his old firm in Atlanta. He died on October 17, 1982.
