Hentz, Reid & Adler was an architectural firm that did work in the U.S. state of Georgia. The firm is "known in the Southeast for their Beaux-Arts style and as the founding fathers of the Georgia school of classicism."[1]

The partnership Hentz & Reid included Hal Fitzgerald Hentz (1883-1972) and Joseph Neel Reid (1885-1926). Rudolph S. Adler became a partner in 1913. In 1927, after Reid’s death in 1926, Philip T. Shutze became partner in 1927 and the firm became known as Hentz, Adler & Shutze.[1]
