Biography of Ulysses G. Orr
Erie County, NY Biographies


Orr, Ulysses G., Buffalo.-There are but few men in this city who in their chosen line command the respect that is given to Mr. Ulysses G. Orr, one of the most energetic architects. He was born in Buffalo, N. Y., October 15, 1864, and after receiving a fair education from the public and high schools of his native city, was early apprenticed to the engraver's trade in the employ of the Buffalo Express. At the end of five years in this office he entered the draughting department of one of the leading architects of this city, and in 1890 he embarked in business on his own account, making a specialty of residential work. He is a son of James G. and Martha A. (Rispin) Orr. His father came to this country from Scotland in 1850 and his mother was born in this country. Mr. Orr is secretary of the Buffalo Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. His spare hours are devoted to the study of photography, and he is an amateur of no mean ability; his object is not so much the production of artistic photographs as an effort to advance the art by the experimental process assisted by a thorough knowledge of chemistry. He is recognized as a liberal and public-spirited man who takes a deep interest in the development of his native and growing city.
