[Skibo] [glass negative]: perspective rendering of part of the house
Sears, Thomas Warren 1880-1966
Smith, Sibley Coslett
3 glass negatives: b&w ; 8 x 10 in
United States of America, Rhode Island, Washington County, South Kingstown, Matunuck
Skibo (Matunuck, Rhode Island)
The rendering contains the notation, "J. Howard Adams/Dec. 18, 1909." Adams is listed as an architect in the Year-Book of the Rhode Island Chapter, American Institute of Architects, published in 1910. In the Rhode Island Historical Preservation Commission's "The Historic and Architectural Resources of South Kingstown, Rhode Island: A Preliminary Report," p. 59, the design of the house is credited to its owner, Sibley C. Smith. It is unclear if J. Howard Adams was actually the architect of Skibo (meaning that the citation in the South Kingstown report is erroneous), or if he was simply the draftsman of the rendering shown in RI048014.
