Although scant biographical information has been found for New York-born Louis E. Marie, it is apparent from citations in the Philadelphia Real Estate Record and Builders' Guide that he had considerable impact on buildings for the City of Philadelphia, chiefly concentrating on alterations to fire and police stations. Before undertaking his employment with the City, Marie had worked for the prestigious firm of Furness, Evans & Co., but later he became Acting City Architect (ca. 1914-1917). By 1918 he had become a lieutenant in the U.S. Naval Reserve, assigned to the Public Works Office.
Marie joined the AIA in 1916. Written by Sandra L. Tatman.
