Detailed Description:
Edmund A. Cameron, son of architect Alexander Cameron, worked for Henry Hobson Richardson after his graduation from Cornell University. Returning to St. Louis from Chicago (where he had superintended Richardson’s Glessner House and the Marshall Field Warehouse) in 1890, Edmund Cameron established a brief partnership with Theodore C. Link. The young firm won the competition for St. Louis Union Station, but the partnership dissolved before the cornerstone was laid. After a few years on his own, Cameron left for Philadelphia. He died there in 1899 at age 39, but was buried in the family plot at Bellefontaine Cemetery.
