Harry W. Wachter
Harry Wilcox Wachter (December 27, 1868 – April 19, 1941) was an American architect in Toledo, Ohio. He was the local architect involved in the design and construction of the Toledo Museum of Art, working with Edward B. Green's Buffalo, New York firm on the Greek revival building. Wachter and his firms are also credited with designing several churches including First Presbyterian Church (Napoleon, Ohio) and historic buildings such as Bronson Place.
He began his professional work at the firm of D.L. Stine. Then he practiced with London born architect George Mills from 1892 to 1897. Their work together included Toledo's Dennison Building at 515-517 Dennison Avenue.
Wachter started his own firm in 1898 and partnered with Thomas Hudson to form Wachter & Hudson.
Wachter took a European tour according to a 1904 edition of the Ohio Builder.
He was made a fellow of the American Institute of Architects, was the first president of Toledo's Sylvania Golf Club and one of the founders of Ottawa Park Golf Club, and was a Mason. He died in 1941 after an illness. His son Horace Wachter also practiced architecture.
