Patton & Fisher
Patton & Fisher was an architectural firm in Chicago, Illinois. It operated under that name from 1885 to 1899 and later operated under the names Patton, Fisher & Miller (1899-1901) and Patton & Miller (1901-1915). Several of its works are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The firm of Patton & Fisher was established in 1885 by architects Normand Smith Patton (July 10, 1852 - May 12, 1915) and Reynolds Fisher. The firm continued to operate under that name in 1899. In 1899, the firm became Patton, Fisher & Miller when Grant C. Miller became a partner. In 1901, Fisher left the practice, and the firm became known as Patton & Miller. Normand Patton was a partner in the firm during its entire existence from 1885 until his death in 1915. Patton was also a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects.
