Biographical Note

Carl A. Gage was born on November 26, 1881 in Newport, New Hampshire. He studied at the Minneapolis School of Fine Arts, and worked successively for the Flour City Ornamental Iron Co., and in the architectural offices of Thomas Holyoke, Ernest Kennedy, Edwin Hewitt, and Bertrand & Chamberlin, before beginning his own practice in 1910. His private architectural practice was interrupted for a brief association with Joseph Vanderbilt (1925-1926). Gage again maintained his own practice after 1926. In 1928, Gage designed "West Winds," the home of William E. Goodfellow. West Winds is now the home of the Bakken Museumof Electricity and Life. Carl Gage died on January 8, 1950 in Laguna Beach, California.
