Note
From the Guide to the Jacobberger Architectural Photographs Collection: "Joseph (Josef) Jacobberger was born in Lautenbach, France on 1869 March 19 and moved to the United States with his family in 1872. Raised in Omaha, Neb., he received his degree in architecture from Creighton University. Joseph first set up his architectural practice in Minneapolis, Minn., then moved to California, and finally settled in Oregon in the l890s. For a time, he worked for the firm of Whidden and Lewis, after which he set up his own firm in 1900 and then formed Jacobberger & Smith with his colleague, Alfred H. Smith, in 1912. He designed residences, Catholic churches, and institutional and public buildings and was also Oregon chapter president of the American Institute of Architects (A.I.A.). Joseph married Anne Mary Lillis (b. 1863) in Portland on 1893 May 2, and the couple had six children, including son Francis Benedict Jacobberger. Joseph Jacobberger died on 1930 March 18. Francis Benedict Jacobberger was born in Portland, Or. on 1898 February 17. He attended the University of Oregon in Eugene, Or. and started his architectural career as a draftsman in his father's firm in 1921. Francis founded the firm Jacobberger and Stanton and also worked for the firm Jacobberger, Stanton, and Zeller, as well as Jacobberger, Franks, and Norman. He designed numerous Catholic churches, schools, hospitals, and other institutional buildings, including St. Francis Church and Providence Hospital in Portland, Or. Like his father, Francis served as president of the Oregon chapter of the American Institute of Architects (A.I.A.) from 1945-1946, and he also co-authored Oregon's architectural practices law. Francis married Maude Cowles Barnes (b. 1898) in 1923, and the couple had two daughters. Francis Benedict Jacobberger died on 1962 February 4. "
