Archimedes Russell, "Syracuse, architect, son of Moody and Fanny (Wardwell) Russell, natives respectively of Alfred, Me., and Andover, Mass., and descendants of members of Plymouth Colony, of Massachusetts Bay, was born in Andover, Mass., June 13, 1840, and when thirteen was apprenticed to Charles S. Parker, a carriage and sign painter. After two years he joined his father, an extensive contractor and builder, attended school in his native town, and just before reaching his majority entered the architectural office of John Stevens, of Boston. Dec. 4, 1862, he came to Syracuse and entered the employ of that well known architect, Horatio N. White, with whom he remained until Jan. 1, 1868, since which time he has actively practiced his profession alone, acquiring a foremost position as an able and talented architect. He designed the Onondaga County Clerk's, Snow, and Greyhound buildings, Congress Hall, Church of Assumption School, House of Providence, Crouse Memorial College, Third National Bank, Crouse stable, and the dwellings of Jacob Amos, H. S. White, Dr. G. D. Whedon, J. S. Crouse, L. S. Denison, and others in Syracuse; the Sibley and McGraw buildings of Cornell University; the Presbyterian church and Mr. D. H. Burrell's residence, Little Falls; Warner Miller's mansion, Herkimer; Devereaux building, Oneida; Second National Bank, Oswego; Otsego county court house; Cortland House, Cortland; and scores of others of equal note. He was fire commissioner from 1881 to 1885, and president of the board in 1884-85, and supervisor from the Seventh ward in 1884, 1886, and 1887. In politics he is a Republican. June 30, 1864, he married Susie M. Bartlett, of Boston." Source: Bruce, Dwight H. (Ed.), Onondaga's Centennial. Boston History Co., 1896, Vol. II, p. 415.
