Name: Daniel Arthur Reamer

Birth/Established: May 12, 1871   Death/Dissolved: October 8, 1927

 


Biography:  
  Reamer was the son of Oberlin merchant Chambers Reamer and his wife, the former Frances F. Cole, who married on May 5, 1868. They moved from Ohio to Birmingham in 1886, and also had a residence in Fort Payne. Daniel returned to his home town to attend classes at Oberlin College in the early 1890s. He moved to Chicago, Illinois in 1892 and worked for his uncle, Daniel P. Reamer, at the A. H. Andrews & Co. furniture store. In 1900 he helped organize a "T-Square Club" in Atlanta, Georgia.

By 1901 he was operating an architectural practice in Birmingham. He relocated his practice to Chattanooga, Tennessee in June 1906 and assisted his father in the development of the "Reamer Place" residential neighborhood in Oberlin in 1908. Around 1909 he began practicing in Cleveland, Ohio, with his younger brother, Robert (best known as the designer of the Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone National Park in 1904.)

In 1924 Reamer returned south and resumed working in Birmingham and Chattanooga. He died in 1927.
