Born: 8/29/1816, Died: 6/8/1899

Gridley J. F. Bryant was the son of engineer Gridley Bryant. His training as an architect was acquired through stints in the offices of architect/engineer Alexander Parris and engineer Loammi Baldwin. Showing great promise, Bryant opened his own office in Boston in 1837; and perhaps building upon his father's connections to the railway industry, he began by designing railway stations, adding warehouses to his list of building types as well. In the 1840s his design of the seminal Charles Street Jail in Boston led to a number of designs for asylums, schools and courthouses.
