Barber, George Franklin (b.1854 - d.1915)
Architect, Knoxville, TN
Born near Fort Scott, Kansas, but moved in 1884 to DeKalb, IL, where he practiced as Barber & Boardman, contractors and builders. Moved again in 1888, to Knoxville, where he formed the partnership Barber & Parmelee (with MARTIN E. PARMELEE) in 1888, Barber, Parmelee, & Linden in 1889, and Barber & Mould in 1890. For much of the rest of his career, he practiced as George F. Barber & Co, filling an entire floor of a downtown building with draftsmen. From 1902-1907, he formed a partnership with THOMAS A. KLUTTZ as BARBER & KLUTTZ and from 1908-1912, he operated as Barber & Ryno. He achieved his greatest success through frequent publications advertising his plans for houses: The Cottage Souvenir (beginning about 1888), Artistic Homes, How to Plan and How to Build Them (1894), and Modern Dwellings (1901-1907) were three of his numerous publications. Son Charles I. Barber continued the practice. See Herndon, Architects in Tennessee, p. 12.
