Owen McGlynn (1878–1918) was an architect who practiced in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania at the end of the nineteenth century and at the beginning of the twentieth. He designed in a variety of styles, including the classical and Gothic revival. His built works included numerous banks, schools and churches.

Biography[edit]

McGlynn was born at Stockton, Pennsylvania on March 28, 1878, the son of Daniel and Bridget McGlynn. The father immigrated to the United States in 1866 and worked as a coal miner,[1] and the son was educated at St. Mary's R.C. School in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.[2] In the 1900 census at Wilkes-Barre, McGlynn gave his age as 23 and his occupation as architect.

Around 1900, McGlynn formed a partnership with an older, more established architect, Ben Davey, Jr. That year, they completed the new St. Aloysius R.C. Church in Lee Park, near Wilkes-Barre, to which they each donated a stained glass window. McGlynn married Elizabeth MacDermott on October 17, 1900.[3] After Davey died in December 1901, McGlynn took over full ownership of the practice.[4]

McGlynn died in 1918.
