Charles Robert Cockerell was an English architect, archaeologist,
and writer. Early in his life, he trained in the architectural
practice of his father, Samuel Pepys Cockerell. One of his earliest
jobs found Cockerell assisting Robert Smirke in rebuilding the
Covent Garden Theatre. He set up his own practice in 1817 and
became relatively successful, winning the first Royal Gold Medal
for architecture in 1848 and becoming president of the Royal
Institute of British Architects in 1860. As an archaeologist,
Cockerell is remembered for removing the reliefs from the temple of
Apollo at Bassae, near Phigalia, which are now in the British
Museum. Replicas of these reliefs were included in the frieze of
the library of the Travellers Club, of which Charles Robert
Cockerell was a founding committee member in 1819
