Note
Lionel Deane was born in Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1861 and immigrated to the US in 1866. After working in Los Angeles, he came to Portland in 1889. where he worked as a draftsman for Justus Krumbein until 1892. In 1893 he started his own practice. From 1899 to 1903 he partnered with architect James Kollofrath in San Francisco. In 1906, Deane led local architectural efforts to rebuild San Francisco after the earthquake and fire. In 1911 he returned to Portland to work on the Washington Hotel. An article in the Morning Oregonian (Feb. 12, 1911) states that Deane designed a number of important buildings in Portland, including the Perkins Hotel (1891), St. Vincent's Hospital, Gilbert Building, A. O. U. W. Temple (1892), and the dome of the State Capitol at Salem. Some of these works are properly credit to Krumbein as Deane was an employee of Krumbein during their creation. The Gilbert Building, however, dates from 1893 when Deane was working independently of Krumbein. In 1912, Deane was arrested with about a dozen others in the Portland vice scandal of November 1912 which targeted homosexuals, but he was released for lack of evidence. According to census records, he was living in New York City with in 1920 where he died in 1938.
