Scott, Adrian Gilbert

Scott, Adrian Gilbert (1882–1963). Son of ‘Middle’ Scott and brother of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. Articled to Temple Moore, he later assisted his brother in several projects, e.g. Greystanes, Mill Hill (1907). His greatest work was the Anglican Cathedral, Cairo, Egypt (1933–8—demolished), but most of his designs were for the RC Church, including the handsome tower of Hansom's Church of the Holy Name, Manchester (1928), and the centralized Sts Joseph & Mary, Lansbury, Poplar, London (1951–3). He also designed the Church of St Leonard, Hastings, Sussex (1953–61—with lively nautical details and parabolic arches), and St Alban, Holborn, London (1959–61— retaining parts of Butterfield's earlier church), both of which were replacements of war-damaged buildings. His own house, Shepherd's Well, Frognal Way, Hampstead, London (1930), was in a chaste Neo-Georgian style (the front door-case has been removed).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
