ABOUT
Alfred S. Alschuler
 ++Alfred S. Alschuler   was born November 2, 1876 in Chicago.  He studied at the Armour Institute of Technology and the Art Institute of Chicago.  In 1899 he worked for Dankmar Adler , joining notables that included Simeon Eisendrath, Hugh Garden, Henry Ottenheimer and  Irving Gill.  After Adler's death in 1900, Alschuler worked for Samuel Treat.  In 1907 he was made partner.  Twice.  Once by Mr, Treat and once again by his new wife Rose Haas. Alfred Alschuler died in Chicago on June 11, 1940.

Ahlsculer's career spanned from the Fair to the height of Art Deco and included multiple building types, styles and technologies. I know him for the London Guarantee. But his real elegance is most clearly evident in his reinforced steel factory buildings.
