Biography:  
  Morris Gleichmann was born in Austria-Hungary and came to the United States with his parents at the age of six. He was educated in the Cleveland public schools. He is listed as a draftsman in the 1884 Cleveland City Directory, eventually working for the architect Edward Ruprect. In 1889 he moved to Seattle, Washington Territory, where he formed the partnership Gleichmann, Lane and Mendel with former Clevelander Samuel Lane. They returned to Cleveland by 1892. Upon his return, Gleichmann formed a partnership with Charles S. Pennington, initially living with relatives at 77 Bridge Street. He later formed a partnership with W. R. Chestney. His building designs reflected progressive designs that were prevalent in the west as practiced by Bernard Maybeck and Greene and Greene. He was the architect and designer of a one-thousand foot high Tower of Babel for the Paris Exposition of 1900. He was a member of the Forest City Blue Lodge Masons and the Scottish Rite, and politically he was a Republican. He lived in Cleveland at 866 East 105th Street until 1914. He moved on to New York City where he practiced architecture until 1930. He died in 1931 and is buried in New York.
