Relocation: Born in the UK, Charles Bebb attended private school in Kensington, London and university at King's College, London; he did preparatory coursework at a secondary school in Switzerland prior to entering the University of Lausanne, Lausanne Switzerland. Following this he took coursework in civil engineering at the Royal School of Mines, London. Thereafter, he obtained work on the Cape Town-Kimberley Railroad in South Africa for 5 years (1877-1882) during the First Boer War of 1880-1881. Seeking additional railroad work, he immigrated to the U.S. in 1882. He came to Chicago, IL, in 1886, getting a job with the Illinois Terra Cotta Company and later, working in the architectural office of Adler and Sullivan. In connection with Adler and, Sullivan's Opera House Project of 1889-1890, Bebb traveled to Seattle, WA, from 10-12/1890. He relocated permanently to the city after he found work as an Architectural Engineer at the Denny Clay Company. He remained in Seattle for the remainder of his life, rising to leadership in the local profession. He died in Overlook Hospital, Summit, NJ, on 06/21/1942.

In a resume published in the Capitol's Who's Who for Seattle (1939), Bebb indicated having worked in Chicago, IL, from 1886-1890, and in Seattle from 1890-on. (See "Charles Herbert Bebb," Capitol's Who's Who in Seattle, [Portland, OR: Capitol Publishing Company, 1939] , p. 522.)

According to the University of Washington Libraries' "Architecture of the Pacific Northwest" web site, Bebb and Gould had distinct responsibilities within the partnership: "Both Charles H. Bebb and Carl F. Gould came into their partnership having already established themselves in their respective fields as individuals and members of highly successful design teams. Joining their complementary strengths, Bebb and Gould became associates in 1914 with the agreement that Bebb would act as engineer and partner in charge of management, contracts and specifications, and Gould as principal designer and planner. When he partnered with Bebb, Gould modified or carried forward some large projects that Bebb's former partner Louis Mendel had begun...." (See "Architecture of the Pacific Northwest: William E. Boeing residence [Seattle, Wash.], entrance gate and lodge elevations," <http://content.lib.washington.edu/cdm4/item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=%2Fac&CISOPTR=1620&DMSCALE=12.5&DMWIDTH=500&DMHEIGHT=231.36193252811&DMMODE=viewer&DMFULL=0&DMX=50&DMY=22.319033735943&DMTEXT=&DMTHUMB=0&REC=2&DMROTATE=0&x=673&y=389> Accessed 06/07/2011.)
Miscellaneous: In "A Volume of Memoirs and Genealogy of Representative Citizens of the City of Seattle and County of King Washington," (New York and Chicago: Lewis Publishing Company, 1903), p. 672, it was noted that Charles Bebb was born in Surrey, England on 04/10/1858. This source noted that Bebb, while working with the Illinois Terra Cotta Lumber Company, supervised the Chamber of Commerce Building in Chicago and the Monon Block. For Adler and Sullivan, Bebb was involved in the construction of the Chicago Auditorium Building, Schiller Theatre, Crane Elevator Company Factory, Cold Storage Exchange, the 31st Street and Indiana Avenue Synagogue, the Wright and Hill Linseed Oil Company Factory and the Meyer Building. There is a great deal of confusion about Bebb's birth date. It has been recorded in several places as having been 04/10/1856. John Addison Ballard, an Australian scholar, has discovered that the 1856 or 1858 dates to have been too early. He wrote: "...[I]t appears that his true date of birth was 10 Apr 1862. His parents were married at the Royal Bavarian Catholic Chapel in Westminster Parish, London on 22 Oct 1859. They had a daughter, Agnes, in about 1860. The Times of 15 Apr 1862 contains a birth notice for a son to Mrs H Charles L Bebb of Notting Hill. In the 1871 census the family appears at West Hall in Mortlake, Surrey with Agnes Margaret age 10 born Mortlake, Charles H age 9 born Bayswater in London." (Email from John Addison Ballard to the author, 03/07/2013. Thank you to Mr. Ballard for his detailed information.) Charles H. Bebb was listed as a Director of the Union Savings and Trust Company in 10/1905, a bank operated by James D. Hoge. (See Union Savings and Trust Company ad, Seattle Times, 10/01/1905, p. 10.) Bebb's firm, Bebb and Mendel, would go on to design a high-rise office building for Hoge in 1909-1911.
