Born: 12/23/1928

Jack A. Thalheimer was born in Philadelphia, the son of Elanore and Clarence S. Thalheimer. The younger Thalheimer trained at the University of Pennsylvania, where he earned a B. Arch. in 1953, and an M.Arch. in 1954. He also attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Fontainebleau. Thalheimer joined his father's firm, Thalheimer & Weitz, the year he completed his education, and was perhaps made a partner in 1957, the year he joined the national AIA. The firm's entry in the 1962 American Architects Directory (see references) indicates that he was a partner by that date. In 1967, the younger Thalheimer became the sole principal of the firm. He established Thalheimer Associates by 1991. Thalheimer was a member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the AIA through the 1970s, and also served as president and an instructor for the T-Square Club between 1958 and 1960.
