Maurice Mayer Feustmann (314), Architect, 1870 - 1943
Maurice M. Feustmann graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1890, took classes at the Pennsylvania Museum and School of Industrial Art, and then rounded off his education by studying architecture in Munich and Paris. After returning to Philadelphia in 1895, Feustmann worked in the offices of several local architects, including Cope & Stewardson. In 1908 Feustmann relocated to Saranac Lake, NY, where he eventually established a partnership with William H. Scopes (Scopes & Feustmann), maintaining offices in both Saranac Lake and New York City. Feustmann achieved a considerable reputation as a designer of hospitals and sanatoria, including the Will Rogers Memorial Hospital and the Winchester Hospital in New Haven, CT (1915).
