Henry John Klutho (1873-1964) was an American architect of the "Prairie School". He helped in the reconstruction of Jacksonville, Florida after the Great Fire of 1901 --the largest-ever urban fire in the Southeast-- by designing many of the new buildings built after the fire. This period lasted until the beginning of World War I. Several Jacksonville architects began their careers in the offices of Klutho's firm.

Klutho was born in a small midwest town. He lived there until the age of 16, when he left for St. Louis, Missouri to study business. Sometime afterwards he became interested in architecture, and moved to New York City to learn more. Frank Lloyd Wright became a major influence, and Klutho's style changed to that of the Prairie School.
