LONG, Robert Carey, architect, born about 1819; died in New York city in July, 1849. He studied architecture, and practised his profession for several years in Baltimore. While in that city he was intrusted with designing and building the Athenaeum, occupied by the Maryland historical society and the Baltimore library company. He removed to New York city in 1848, and was rapidly acquiring a reputation when his career was cut short by cholera. He contributed a series of articles entitled "Architectonics" to the "New York Literary World," and read a paper before the New York historical society on "Aztec Architecture," which was printed in its "Transactions." He was also the author of "Ancient Architecture of America" (New York, 1849).
