KELLUN, John, architect, born in Hempstead, New York, 27 August, 1809; died there, 25 July, 1871. He began life as a house-carpenter in his native village, but after a few years went to Brooklyn, New York, worked at his trade, studied architecture, and was subsequently foreman in the workshop of Gamaliel King, of New York, who in 1846 took him into partnership. He was fertile in invention, and particularly successful in adopting the renaissance style of architecture to business purposes. Among the buildings that were designed by him in New York city are the "Herald" building, Alexander T. Stewart's building at 10th street and Broadway and his residence on Fifth avenue, the Park avenue hotel, the Stock exchange, the Mutual life insurance company's buildings on Broadway, and the New York city court house. Mr. Kellum was also the superintendent of all the buildings that were erected by Alexander T. Stewart at Garden City, New York
