Biographical history

Harry Thomas Lindeberg was an architect who designed residences throughout the United States, including on the North Shore. Lindeberg was born in Bergen Point, New Jersey. He obtained his degree in architecture from the National Academy of Design in New York City in 1901.

After graduating, Lindeberg took a job as an assistant draftsman at the firm of McKim, Mead & White in New York City. He worked there until 1906 when he decided to start a practice of his own with fellow draftsman at the firm, Lewis Colt Albro. The two worked together until 1914. At this point, Lindeberg began to practice independently.

Lindeberg was married to Lucia Hall. The couple had two children, Linda and Lytle. The pair divorced in 1925. Lindeberg went on to remarry a woman named Angeline Kretch James.
