EIDLITZ, Leopold, architect, born in Prague, Bohemia, 29 March 1823. He was educated at the Polytechnic school in Prague, and in Vienna, immigrated to this country, and became an architect in New York City. Among the buildings designed by him are Christ Church, St. Louis; St. George's Church, New York City ; the Brooklyn academy of music; the Drydock bank building, on the Bowcry, New York ; and the Continental bank building in that City. In 1875, with Frederick Law Ohnsted and Henry H. Richardson, he was appointed on a commission to consider the work already accomplished in the building of the capitol at Albany. An elaborate report was made, and Mr. Eidlitz undertook preliminary studies for the completion of the building. Subsequently its continuation was confided to Mr. Richardson, but much of the dignity of the work in its present condition is due to the designs of Mr. Eidlitz. He has published "The Nature and Function of Art" (New York, 1881).
His son, Cyrus Lazelle Warner Eidlitz, architect, born in New York City, 27 July 1853, was educated in New York, Geneva, Switzerland, and at the Polytechnic institute in Stuttgart. Among the buildings that he has designed are the Michigan central railway station in Detroit (1880), the Dearborn station in Chicago (1883), and the Buffalo library, which is represented in the annexed picture (1886).
