Swarthout and Speer

  • American

Swarthout and Speer was the short-lived architectural practice of Zeno Speer and Harvey Reese Swarthout. Formed in 1914 when Harvey Swarthout came to Wausau, the firm soon switched hands and became Oppenhamer and Obel after the death of Swarthout in 1919. It is believed that Speer left the area shortly afterward. - AsNotedIn
