Biography from the American Architects and Buildings database

Born in Philadelphia, Simeon M. Yerkes established himself as an architect in Reading, where he joined the prestigious office of Frederick A. Muhlenberg as a designer in 1915. By 1930 the office name had changed to Muhlenberg, Yerkes & Muhlenberg when Yerkes was accepted as a full partner.

He gained AIA membership in 1945 and transferred from the Philadelphia Chapter, AIA, to the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter in 1958.
