William Welles Bosworth, known as the personal architect of John D. Rockefeller Jr., was responsibile for much of the architecture at Rockefeller's Kykuit estate, as well as MIT's campus in Cambridge, Mass. Despite these and other high-profile designs, Bosworth was better known in France, where he was one of the few Americans ever to receive the Legion of Honor and the French Cross of the Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters for his restoration of Versailles and Notre-Dame de Reims, both funded by Rockefeller.
As these projects ended in 1936, Bosworth began work on the Villa Marietta in Vaucresson, remaining in France with his family and eventually becoming an associate member of the École des Beaux-Arts, where he had received his architectural training early in his career.
