During a practice that spanned fifty-four years (1882-1936), Clarence Johnston designed more buildings than any other figure in Minnesota's history. As Minnesota State Architect for thirty years, Johnston designed virtually all the buildings on thirty-five state-owned sites and campuses including the University of Minnesota, and he was also the most sought-after residential architect for two generations of St. Paul's upper classes. Forty-two of his designs line Summit Avenue alone, one of the most famous and best-preserved Victorian boulevards in America.
