Abstract: American architect famous for his residential and commercial structures. He studied at Marquette University (although he earned his degree from Cornell University in 1890) and established an architectural practice in Milwaukee in 1892. Among his most celebrated designs are the Japanese pagoda-style filling stations for Wadham’s Oil and Grease Company of Milwaukee, though only a few remain today. Most of his homes were designed in Jacobethan or neo-Georgian style. Several of his surviving buildings and homes are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
