MARKHAM, Jared Clark, architect, born in Tyringham, Massachusetts, 18 November, 1816. He is a direct descendant, of Sir Robert Markham, a knight of Queen Elizabeth's time. He was educated in the common schools and under private tutors, and read law, but abandoned it for architecture. He is the architect of the Saratoga monument, and designer of the bronze allegorical interior bas-reliefs. (See GATES, HORATIO.) He published and edited at Troy, New York, in 1860, under the auspices of the Saratoga county agricultural society, a magazine devoted to the industrial interests of New York state, and is the author of an " Appeal to the American People in Behalf of National Monuments" (New York, 1872); " Monumental Art" (1884) ; and " Historic Sculpture" (1886) : besides frequent contributions to architectural periodicals. He is now (1888) engaged on a work to be entitled "Elementary Principles of Art: its Nature and Uses in the Development of Individual and National Character."
