The Arthur B. Claflin Estate

 The Arthur Brigham Claflin estate designed by Grosvenor Atterbury c. 1898 in Southampton.  Claflin was a partner in the dry goods firm of H.B. Claflin & Co. which was founded by his father.  Today the home functions as the administration building to Long Island University's Southampton College.  Click HERE to see the Claflin residence on google earth and HERE on bing.

P.S. Dilettante -- Who's to say what the client brought to the final design? (Cf. In re Rockefeller.) It might be more fair to say he was inconsistent, as he'd done great things a decade before.

Excellent point Mr. Ancient.
