Hooker had the misfortune to lay his work in the path of what was called in the 1930s, at its dispirited conclusion, a Century of Progress. He died in 1836, as that century commenced. Progress was often confused with nervous change, each change justified by a disparaging view of the past. Progress is often bad for architecture, architecture being, by its nature, an obstruction, but for a profoundly conservative architect like Philip Hooker the consequences were disastrous. Nearly all his buildings were obliterated. Judging from the few which have survived, especially his Hamilton College Chapel, his Albany Academy, and his quirky Hyde Hall near Cooperstown, as well as from the drawings in this exhibition, many of those buildings were very good and have been replaced by worse.
