Bio

Minerva Parker was born on May 14, 1862, in Peoria, Illinois. After her father’s death in the Civil War, her mother moved the family to Philadelphia and opened a boarding house for medical students. Following in the footsteps of her maternal grandfather, Seth A. Doane, who designed both houses and prairie schooners for western settlers, Minerva pursued a career in architecture. She graduated from the Philadelphia Normal Art School in 1882, and also trained at the Franklin Institute Drawing School before joining the office of Edwin W. Thorne in 1886. This apprenticeship in Thorne’s office on South Broad Street lasted only three years before Thorne moved his practice to Arch Street in 1888. Succeeding him in his office on South Broad Street, Parker became the first woman in the country to practice architecture independently, with no man attached to her firm.
