dates and new source[edit]

The article currently gives (23 December 1881-1 October 1971) as birth and death dates, but a bio of him in this 2009 source says he died 1 Oct 1971 at age 82. The math doesn't jibe. This source has other info to add to the article, too. doncram (talk) 01:40, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

That source covers the Priteca-designed Naval Reserve Armory (article in progress now) in Seattle, WA. Other places designed by Priteca which are listed on the National Register are:

Source Material[edit]

The essay on B.Marcus Priteca by Miriam Sutermeister in Shaping Seattle Architecture says December 23, 1889, for the birth date. This essay has lots of good information and in the back of a book is a list of sources and a list of some of his works.Sullivanesque (talk) 22:36, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
