Biography:  
  Gerhard A. Tenbusch was born in Germany and came to America at the age of seventeen. He graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In the 1890's he worked as a draftsman and then architect in Duluth, Minnesota. He was a partner with I. Vernon Hill by 1899. He moved to Cleveland in 1900, maintaining a relationship with Hill who remained in Duluth until 1901. Their offices were on the fourth floor of the Electric Building. After that firm dissolved in 1901, Tenbush moved his office to the Rose Building. Tenbusch specialized in church architecture in the early years of his career, later specializing in commercial design. Initially he worked as an architect and later entered real estate. He formed the Estates and Investment Company, which he headed for several years. He lived at 1854 East 79th Street and had an office in the Buckeye Building. He died at the age of sixty-seven and is buried in Calvary Cemetery.
