Born: c. 1895, Died: 3/9/1953

Edmund G. Krimmel earned a B.S. in Architecture in 1917 from the University of Pennsylvania, and studied at the Sorbonne in Paris. During World War I he served with the Army Air Force Intelligence unit.

From the 1930s until his death, Krimmel specialized in publicly-funded housing projects and urban redevelopment in the Philadelphia region, working in association with other architects. These included H. Bartol Register, with whom he designed the Highland Homes Development in Wayne, PA, for the federal Public Works Administration, and John Lane Evans, James Spear Hatfield, and Lloyd Malkus.

Krimmel was a member of the national AIA. He was considered to be an expert on aerial photography (this may have been among the skills he acquired during his military service), and lectured on the subject at Fort Belvoir, VA.
