American architect and artist based in Pasadena, California. Grey was born in Chicago and educated in the Milwaukee public schools. Another major commission during his years in Wisconsin was the Christian Science church in Milwaukee. It was shortly after those plans were finished that Grey later recalled that “my health broke down completely. Grey wrote that his health problems had more to do with “nerves” rather than anything purely physical.

In 1904, Grey became friends with a fellow Midwestern architect, Myron Hunt. The two rode horses together on Sunday mornings in Pasadena and formed a partnership in that city as Hunt and Grey. Grey later wrote that he began by working only a short time each day “until my nerves got in better shape. Grey designed a Beaux Arts mansion for railroad and finance magnate, Henry Huntington, in San Marino. The mansion, built with reinforced concrete, tile walls and a slab roof, was not completed until 1911.

Grey’s larger commissions included work for Throop Institute in Pasadena, the school which would soon become California Institute of Technology. Grey designed a home for Dr. Guy Cochran near Downtown Los Angeles that Gustav Stickley’s The Craftsman magazine dubbed the “very best” of their work, with enormous windows “looking out upon the terrace and garden, giv such a sense of relationship between the two that there is almost no feeling of being enclosed within walls. The best California bungalow schemes involve a garden or large outdoor living space, incorporated as an integral part of the plan. Though often associated with the Craftsman movement, Grey’s structures reflect a wide variety of styles, including Beaux Arts, Mission Revival and English Tudor. One Grey biographer wrote: “While Grey shared a number of beliefs with Stickley and the Arts and Crafts movement, his catholic, traditionalist taste and disposition would not allow him to become an exponent of any one movement. After his partnership with Hunt dissolved in 1910 or 1911, Grey went on to design the Pasadena Playhouse, the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Lincoln Shrine in Redlands, three buildings for the First Church of Christ Scientist, and many residences.
