(b. Auburn, New York 1864; d. 1900)
Born in Auburn, New York, Albert Cicero Schweinfurth was the son of a designer of architectural ornament. Although, Schweinfurth gained the greatest public attention, his brothers Charles, Julius, and Henry also became architects.
Trained in the office of Peabody and Stearns, Schweinfurth worked for A. Page Brown in New York until 1888. Two years later, after unsuccessful attempts at independent practice in New York and Denver, he rejoined Brown in San Francisco, as chief draftsman. He worked on his own between 1895 and 1898.
While practicing in California, first under Brown and then on his own, Schweinfurth played a formative role in developing a regional mode of expression inspired by California's Hispanic legacy.
In 1898, Schweinfurth started a two year travel through Europe. He died of typhoid fever in 1900, shortly after his return.
