ID: 375
Partnership Name: Edelman, Abram M. Architect
Position Title: Principal
Firm Partners: Edelman, Abram M.
Notes: Edelman operated a practice in Los Angeles, CA, from the 1880s into the 1920s. In 1887, a Los Angeles Times reporter described Edelman's office at that time: "The reporter found Mr. Edelman laboring with the pencil and rule, under the incovenience of a 'walk-out' on the part of his draughtsmen. They had received an offer of higher wages, and went out without warning. Mr. Edelman spoke of the occurrence as quite customary on the part of draughtsmen, who would give up a job without warning to go to another office for larger salary. A draughtsman gets from $3 to #5 a day, and the best workmen have no difficulty in commanding the latter figure. Mr. Edelman has been forced to send to San Francisco for men, so great is the demand." (See "A.M. Edelman," Los Angeles Times, 05/26/1887, p. 2.)
