Biography

Emil Lorch was born in Detroit of German-American parentage on July 21, 1870. He attended schools in Detroit, including the Detroit Museum of Art School, then went to work for the city's architectural offices. He next studied at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1890-1892, then returned to Detroit where he worked and was active in art and museum circles, especially the Detroit School of Art where he taught from 1895 to 1898. He studied in Paris, 1898-1899, and then went to Chicago as general assistant to the director of the Chicago Art Institute, 1899-1901. He was also secretary of the Chicago School of Architecture.

Lorch next attended Harvard University, 1901-1903, where he obtained his M.A. degree in architecture. From 1903 to 1906 he was assistant professor of architecture at Drexel Institute in Philadelphia. In the fall of 1906 he came to the University of Michigan to establish a department of architecture in the College of Engineering. Under his leadership, the department in 1931 was re-established as a separate College of Architecture within the university with Lorch appointed as its first dean.

Lorch was both a teacher and a practicing architect. He designed the Architecture Building at the University of Michigan, the Belle Isle Bridge in Detroit, and the residence of Alex Dow in Barton Hills. He was also professionally involved. Lorch served on the Committee on Education of the American Institute of Architects and was active in the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture and the Michigan Society of Architects. During his career, Lorch corresponded with all the leading figures in academic architectural education, including Roy Jones, Warren P. Laird., and J. B. Robinson. He also was a leading figure in the movement for licensing architects in Michigan, 1915-1917, and served nationally in this movement through the 1930s via the A.I.A.'s Committee on Registration.

After his retirement from the university in July 1940, Lorch devoted himself almost entirely to preserving Michigan's historic buildings. This interest had been fired originally by the Historic American Buildings Survey of the 1930s on whose advisory committee he served and whose records (Midwest District) form a part of this collection. He was active in the restoration projects of Mackinac Island and other early Michigan forts; and he cataloged and collected information and pictures about hundreds of historic and contemporary Michigan structures.

Lorch died June 20, 1963.


Collection Scope and Content Note

The Emil Lorch papers are valuable for their documentation of the career of this important architectural educator and for that material about Michigan architecture and historic structures that Lorch accumulated in the course of his professional study and organizational involvement. The collection includes extensive correspondence with many of the country's leading architects, most notably members of the "Chicago School," and architectural educators, and manuscript and photographic documentation resulting from Lorch's involvement with the Michigan Historic Buildings Survey and various restoration projects, including Mackinac Island.

Biographical/Personal [series]

The Biographical/Personal series (3 folders) consists of collected biographical information about Lorch and materials that he accumulated about the Lorch family. Some of this material is quite early, dating from 1806, and written in German script.

Correspondence 1891-1962 [series] (9.5 linear feet)

Correspondence is the largest series in the collection. Arranged chronologically, the series includes interchanges between Lorch and his university and professional colleagues. This series also includes items other than correspondence, such as reports, memoranda, and speeches. Because Lorch was in Chicago at the turn-of-the-century, he came to know Louis Sullivan and other members of the "Chicago School" of architecture. Within his collection, there is correspondence with W. M. R. French, director of the Chicago Art Institute as well as some letters from Sullivan himself. More important is Lorch's lifelong correspondence spanning forty years with George Elmslie, intimate associate and colleague of Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright, and Lorch's brother-in-law. As Lorch was also a student at M.I.T. and Harvard, Lorch knew and came to correspond with Denman Ross, F.W. Chandler and Warren H. Langford. Lorch's correspondence covers a range of topics, not just matters relating to architecture. For example, there is much lore and information about early 20th century academia, some documentation of the effect of the Great Depression on a vulnerable profession - architecture, the effects of World War I and II on the academic community (especially young people), and official state and professional attempts to save a visible and concrete past via architecture.

Appended to this finding aid is a selective listing of correspondents and subjects documented in the collection. This listing was prepared soon after the collection came to the library in 1965.
