Biography of Herbert D. Rushmer
Oneida County, NY Biographies





Architecture in its highest phase has a worthy exponent in Herbert D. Rashmer, who has been connected with the profession since 1886, and since 1900 has been a member of the firm of Agne, Rushmer & Jennison New York numbers him among her native sons, his birth having occurred in Frankfort, on the 12th of December, 1865. No event of special importance occurred to vary the usual experience of boyhood and youth, his time being largely devoted to the acquirement of an education in a private school and later at Colgate Academy, Hamilton, New York, and to those games which usually constitute the chief source of pleasure to the normal boy. He was twenty one years of age, when, in 1886, he began studying architecture, entering the office of Jacob Are, under whose direction he became acquainted with the various phases of the business, studying his work from both the scientific and practical standpoints. Continuous progress which he made in his chosen calling won the attention of those whom he served and in due time promotion followed, bringing him at length to a partnership, when, in 1900, he was made a member of the firm Many of the finest structures of the city stand as monuments to the ability, enterprise and progressive business methods of this firm and contribute much to the attractive appearance of Utica.

Mr. Rushmer was married in 1905. He attends the First Presbyterian church and in politics is independent, preferring to vote as his judgment dictates without allying himself with party interests. In matters of citizenship, however, he maintains a progressive stand, giving his support to all movements and measures which he deems of practical value in the upbuilding and improvement of Utica.
