Hegemann (1881-1936, New York City) was an internationally known city planner, architecture critic, and author. He established "Hegemann & Peets," a firm specializing in city and suburban planning based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with landscape architect Elbert Peets. The firm designed the Washington Highlands Historic District, and Wyomissing Park, a "Modern Garden Suburb" in Reading, Pennsylvania. Hegemann and Peets together published "The American Vitruvius: An Architects' Handbook of Civic Art," a "thesaurus" of civic art for architects, commenting on about 1200 examples of the discipline.
