Who was John Henry Chamberlain?

John Henry Chamberlain, generally known professionally as J H Chamberlain, was a nineteenth-century English architect.

Working predominantly in the Victorian Gothic style, he was one of the earliest and foremost practical exponents of the ideas of architectural theorist John Ruskin, who selected Chamberlain as one of the trustees of his Guild of St George. Chamberlain's later work was increasingly influenced by the early Arts and Crafts movement.

The majority of Chamberlain's buildings were located in and around Birmingham, where he was a major figure in civic life and an influential friend of many of the liberal elite who dominated the city under Mayor Joseph Chamberlain.
