He was born in Chicago in 1878 and graduated from Columbia University's School of Architecture in 1901. From 1902 to 1911, he practiced with the architectural firm of McKim, Mead & White. Later, he partnered with the firm of Wallis & Goodwillie before joining Shreve and Lamb to form Shreve, Lamb & Harmon.
