Eugene R. Liebert

Eugene R. Liebert (1866 – April 27, 1945) was a German American architect who is known for his works in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.



Eugene R. Liebert was born in Germany in 1866. He emigrated to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1883, where he found work with a relative in the Trostel & Gallun tannery. The next year, Liebert took a position as a draftsman with Henry C. Koch. When Paul Schnetzky left Koch's office to start his own architectural firm, Liebert followed him as his foreman. In 1891, Liebert was admitted as a partner. Liebert left to form his own architectural office in 1897. Liebert was a popular choice among Milwaukee Germans and his work strongly reflects his home country' style. Two of his sons, Walter F. and Carl, worked with him. Liebert was active as an architect until his death on April 27, 1945. The Albert O. Trostel House at 3200 North Lake Drive was considered his masterpiece, but it was destroyed following a 1935 fire.
