Biographical or historical data
Burnham Hoyt was born in Denver, Colo. in 1887 and graduated from Denver High School, North Side, in 1904. He attended the Beaux Arts School of Design in New York City, N.Y. in 1908 and after graduation served his apprenticeship at the firm of George Post and Bertram Goodhue. In 1919, Hoyt returned to Denver to join his brother, Merrill Hoyt, in forming an architectural firm. In 1926, Burnham Hoyt accepted a commission to design the interior of The Riverside Church in New York City. He remained in New York City and joined the faculty of the New York University School of Architecture becoming dean of the school in 1930. He taught at the university until his brother, Merrill died suddenly in 1933. He eventually returned to Denver to fulfill the firm's commitments and to establish his own firm. He designed many private residences throughout Colo. for clients such as Adolph Coors and the Tammen family. Hoyt married Mildred Fuller in 1936. Some of his more significant designs were for institutions; both the Denver Children's Hospital (1936) and the Boettcher School for Crippled Children (1938) received national recognition. He also designed Red Rocks Amphitheater, Morrison, Colo. and the Denver Public Library. In the early 1950's, Hoyt was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, and by 1955 he was forced to close his practice. He died at his home in 1960.
