Architects' Profiles

ARTHUR J. LAIB

Architect

(1884-1954)

Most residential architects practicing in San Francisco from
1900 on had to respond to the demand for multi-family
structures. Apartment buildings were seen as a necessary
response to high land values and were regarded as a good
investment by their owners. One modern measure we can use of the
quality of an architect's work is how many of his apartment
buildings have been converted to condominiums.

Arthur Joseph Laib was born in San Francisco and grew up in a
pair of flats owned by his family. He was educated at local
public schools and took an architecture course at Wilmerding
School of Industrial Arts, graduating in 1901. He started work
as a draftsman in the office of architect Philip Schwerdt at 927
Market, remaining with Schwerdt for four years. In 1906 he
opened his own practice.

Laib's earlier styles are Colonial Revival and Mission Revival.
Many examples remain including a fine matching pair of
single-family homes at 1360 & 1368 McAllister (1909) and many
sets of flats and apartment buildings, which became his
specialty. On Nob Hill there are four adjacent triplexes at
1308-30 Taylor (1908), and another triplex at 1242-46 Mason
(also 1908). In Presidio Heights look for 3934-36 Clay (1909), a
design which was to be reprised later in Jordan Park at 58-60
Palm (1911).

Two interesting Mission Revival apartment complexes followed,
both built into hillsides, at 1925-55 Jackson (1912, Glenlee
Terrace, a collection of two duplexes and four triplexes - 16
flats in total, see photo) and at 2772-86 Jackson (1914, six
flats and a studio in three terraced buildings).

On Nob Hill, opposite the block on which Charles Crocker's
French Second Empire mansion had stood until the 1906 earthquake
and fire, and where, since 1910, the Notre-Dame-inspired Grace
Cathedral had been planned, Laib designed three adjoining
buildings, two apartments with a house in between, in the
Parisian-style at 1224, 1230 and 1242 Sacramento (1915, see
photo).

Resisting pressures to obtain a State architectural license,
Laib's practice inevitably slowed and he pursued other
employment for a while, but his legacy of fine San Francisco
apartment architecture later included 3337 Clay (1923), a
six-unit apartment building he built for himself next door to
his residence at 3333 Clay, and another fine six-unit building
at 3101 Clay (1924, see photo).

This is a transcription of a letter written by Emma Laib to Lee
Laib.

August seventh

Dear Lee

It was so nice receiving your letter requesting information
about the Laib family tree. I will be happy to tell you all
that I know.

Grandfather Laib was Joseph Laib and came from a family which
mother was widowed. I believe when the children were young.
They were farm people who lived in a house handed down from many
generations with the first born inheriting the land. It was
located in the vicinity of the Black Forest, Germany. It is a
beautiful country with well kept farms which are marked off by
lilac bushes. I remember Dad speaking of this. The name Laib
means "bread." By way of interest there is a town in Germany
named Laib. Someone returning from there informed Joe of this.

Grandfather's brother and sisters were Anton, Theresa and a
sister who remained in Germany. Probably the one who inherited
the land.

Anton Laib left Germany first and learned the trade of
bootmaking working in Pacific Street , San Francisco, with his
wife and family of four girls and one boy. Grandfather Joseph
arrived later and learned the trade from his brother. Both I
understand were excellent craftsmen. Grandfather built his home
in the sand dunes of Post Street in San Francisco and also
maintained his shop there.

Theresa Laib followed her brothers to San Francisco then she
married August Hahn. They maintained a grocery store store, I
believe on Sutter from many years. She was a very generous and
gracious person and was well loved by all the children of the
neighborhood. Every Christmas each child received a gift. She
planned for this weeks ahead of the holiday season.

Grandmother Laib was born Mathilda Schmidt. The family resided
in the vicinity of Ulm, Germany. Their occupation was that of
making spinning wheels. She was well loved by all her
grandchildren. She had a very loving way with her, very deep
affection for all her family. She was a meticulous homemaker in
every detail. She was very bright and knew all the answers to
her children'­s homework and was most helpful. Dad said she must
have had a good education in Germany.

Hope this information is along the lines of which you requested.
If not I will be happy to add and other details of which I may
be asked to answer. We hope to have the pleasure of yours and
Bill'­s company for dinner at our home when Ed and Vernice return
from their trip.

You also mentioned Ed'­s brother, I was speaking with Marie
yesterday and she said everything is going along quite nicely so
there is always "Hope."

From Inside The Beverly Hills Supper Club Fire
By Ron Elliott & Wayne Dammert

"Mary Louise and Raymond Bohrer, Of Bridgetown, Ohio, were treat-
ing their family to a belated 31 year anniversary party at Beverly Hills.
Participating in the celebration was their son, Thomas, and his wife, Bar-
bara Ann, the Bohrer's daughter, Mary Susan, and her husband Edwin
Vogel. Completing the group were the younger Bohrer girls, Judith and
Jane. Jane was just past her sixteenth birthday. Judith had been on assign-
ment with the Peace Corps, and part of the reason for the delay in the
anniversary part was to await her return to this country. Judith Bohrer is
the young woman mentioned in the coroner's gruesome tale of mistaken
identity. Edwin Vogel was the sole survivor of this group, escaping with an
injured ankle and suffering from smoke inhalation, to rear his and Mary
Susan's five children. The deaths of Barbara and Thomas Bohrer left a
three month-old infant an orphan."

Apparently there was another Theresia (3 children, d. 1933) married to another August Hahn, who is easily confused with this individual. Theresa Laib's obituary mentions her Laib relatives, and does not mention any children (nor does the 1900 census).

The San Francisco Call, September 11, 1901, P. 11:

HAHN - In this city, September 10, 1901, Theresa Hahn, widow of the late August Hahn, and sister of Anton and Joseph Laib, Mrs. George Hotte and Mrs. Anton Bantley, a native of Wurtemberg, Germany, aged 67 years 1 month and 21 days.

Friends and acquaintances are respectfully invited to attend the funeral to-morrow (Thursday) at 1 o'clock, from her late residence, 1617 Sutter Street, between Octavia and Laguna. Interment Mount Olivet Cemetery, by carriage.
