Thomas P. Barber
Thomas Pellatt Barber (January 31, 1863, Colchester, England - December 27, 1932, Glendale, California) was an architect active in the Southwestern United States. Several of his works are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
Barber's family moved to the United States from England while he was still an infant. They first settled in Illinois and then moved to Colorado Springs, where he received his education. By the late 1880s, he had partnered with L. A. Pease, to form the architectural firm of Pease and Barber, which specialized in ecclesiastical buildings.
By 1900, Barber was working alone but formed a partnership in 1902 with his brother, William, which lasted until 1920. He moved to Los Angeles, California, in 1927.
