Born in Bridgeton, NJ, Joseph M. Blew received his architectural education at Drexel Institute, where he received a certificate in 1905 and held a scholarship for additional study for 1905/06. His earliest work appears to have been for Ballinger & Perrot, whom he eventually represented in Lyons, France in 1921. He also worked for Ritter & Shay as superintendant of constructuion from 1924 to 1932, when he entered a short-lived partnership (MacKenzie & Blew, 1934-1939). In 1940 Blew organized an independent firm which included his son: J. M. Blew & Son with offices in Media, PA.
