- Ethel Bailey Furman (1893-1976), probably the first practicing African-American female architect in Virginia, studied architecture with a private tutor in New York City circa 1915 and at the Chicago Technical Institute from 1944-1946. A Richmond native and daughter of a promient African-American builder, for many years she worked out of the home built by her father, Madison J. Furman, at 3025 Q Street. She is credited with nearly two hundred public and private designs in Richmond and the surrounding area, including Fair Oak Baptist Church (Richmond, Virginia), St. James Baptist Church (Goochland County, Virginia), the Robert J. Wilder home (Richmond, Virginia), and Mount Nebo Baptist Church (New Kent County, Virginia). Furman was active in a number of civic organizations and church groups. Two of the architect's designs were donated to the Lott Carey Missionary League and were erected in Liberia, Africa. Ethel Bailey Furman died in Richmond on Tuesday, February 24, 1976.
