Henry Vaughan Lanchester (1863-1953), architect and town planner. In the 1920s and 1930s, his practice, Lanchester and Lodge, developed a classical style popular in the inter-war years, especially for municipal clients, including Beckenham (1932) and Hackney (1934-7) Town Halls, as well as winning many competitions for university buildings, notably Leeds University, where the Brotherton Library is perhaps their finest design. The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Edgbaston (1933-8), led to them becoming specialists in hospital architecture. He also designed his home in Weybridge (?).
