Andrews, Jaques and Rantoul was an American architectural firm founded in Boston, Massachusetts in 1885 by Robert Day Andrews, Herbert Jaques and Augustus Day Rantoul.[1] The firm designed numerous buildings that are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Their works include:

Robert Day Andrews was a draftsman under Henry Hobson Richardson[2] before co-founding Andrews, Jaques and Rantoul. His subsequent firm, Chapman, Sturgis & Andrews, designed the white marble wings of the Massachusetts State House in 1914-1917.[5]

Despite many listings as Andrews, Jacques & Rantoul, even during the years they operated, the firm name is correctly spelled: Andrews, Jaques & Rantoul.
