Biographical or historical data
  • Carl Max Lindner, Sr. (1895-1973), a Richmond, Virginia, native, learned the architectural profession while working for his uncle, Carl Ruehrmund. A graduate of Richmond's Virginia Mechanical Institute, Lindner began private practice around 1919. Most noteably associated with Charles H. Phillips in the early 1920s, Lindner also partnered with Bascom J. Rowlett and Ivan Alten. On a number of commissions, Lindner and Phillips are listed as architects and contractors, a consequence of their being involved in a number of speculative projects.
  • As an architect, Carl M. Lindner practiced in a number of styles including Art Deco, Tudor, Colonial Revival, Cotswold, and California Mission. A few of Lindner's noteable commissions are the Lord Fairfax Apartments (1923), 3117-3133 Monument Avenue (all 1928), and 306 East Grace Street (1928).
