Birth/Established: March 30, 1874   Death/Dissolved: June 21, 1941

 


Biography:  
  Harlen Shimmin was born in Cleveland, attending public schools and Business College. He began working as a mechanical engineer completing mechanical drawings. He later shifted to architecture. As early as 1892 he worked in the office of Charles W. Hopkinson and in 1904 went into business for himself. The largest part of his work was in residential design, examples of which are found in the Wade Park Allotment, Edgewater, Cleveland Heights, Shaker Heights, and East Cleveland. He was a member of the Colonial Club, the Cleveland Athletic Club, a Mason of the Scottish Rite, and a member of the Al Koran Temple. Several of his designs were featured in the February 1913 Ohio Architect, Engineer, and Builder. He was listed as a registered architect in the November 1940 Ohio Architect.
