Daniel S. Beale first appears in the Philadelphia city directories as an architect in 1881; but although he continues as architect through 1918, little is actually known of his life. In 1876 he is noted as a student at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and records from the City of Philadelphia reveal that he was employed as assistant architect by the Board of Public Education from 1888-1891 and from 1897-1901. Citations from the Philadelphia Real Estate Record and Builders Guide indicate that his practice concentrated on residential operations, chiefly in West Philadelphia; but he also designed a number of public facilities, such as the public bath house commissioned by the City for 8th and Mifflin streets.
