Clarence Samuel Stein was born in Rochester, New York. He was an American urban planner, architect, and writer, a major proponent of the Garden City movement in the United States. Upon returning to the United States, Stein joined the office of the deeply conservative Gothic-Revival architect Bertram Goodhue and his more illustrious, but equally conservative, partner, Ralph Adams Cram in 1911 and contributed to three of Goodhue's large-scale projects of the time: the 1915 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, California, the company town of Tyrone, New Mexico, and the master plan and individual buildings for the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. In 1919 Stein started his own practice in New York, and in 1921 began his long association with fellow architect Henry Wright. From 1923 to 1926 Stein served as chairman for the New York State Housing and Regional Planning Commission.
