Emma (née Gruetzke) Brunson (1887-1980) was an American architect. Brunson was probably born in St. Paul, Minnesota. Nothing is known of her education and training, however, she worked as a drafter and specifications writer for Augustus F. Gauger for 15 years before she opened her own firm in 1920. She became a registered architect on December 23, 1921, soon after the enactment of the Minnesota law requiring registration for architects and engineers. She did primarily residential work until her retirement in 1968. Brunson died in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1980.

Some of her buildings are:

  • Hugo Koch residence, Osceola Avenue between Albert and Hamline Avenues, Saint Paul, Minnesota (1923)
  • Emma Brunson residence, Maryland Street between Arcade and Mendota Streets, Saint Paul
  • Theodore Maier residence, 616 Gotzian, St. Paul (1926)
  • C.E. Smith residence, 673 Nebraska Avenue, St. Paul (1926)
  • Legacy

    Her papers are held in the Northwest Architectural Archives at the University of Minnesota.
