Timothy G. O'Connell

Timothy G. O’Connell (1868-1955) was an American architect whose Boston-based practice specialized in ecclesiastical design.

O”Connell is repudiated to have produced some 600 civic and religious buildings. Some of these structures such as the Church of Sts. Peter and Paul in Lewiston ME would rival any medieval cathedral in form and scale. Unfortunately little is currently known of this architect and his work. When he closed his office in Boston in the 1950s he destroyed all of his records and drawings.

The first building that O’Connell designed was a Church in Twin Mountain NH (1890). In 1901 he became the junior partner of the firm Chickering and O’Connell with George W. Chickering. The firm had offices in Manchester, NH and Springfield MA. At one time Chickering and O'Connell employed up to 60 draftsmen and they designed churches for the Episcopal denomination as well as Catholics.

From 1911 onward O’Connell worked on his own. He married in 1921 and in 1924 took a business partner, Richard J. Shaw, who had e graduated from the Harvard School of Design in 1912. The new firm, known as O’Connell and Shaw was located in Boston MA and lasted for six years. Thereafter Mr. O'Connell and Mr. Shaw continued practice under their own names.
