Benjamin Rush Stevens appears in the Philadelphia city directories in 1903 as part of the firm of G. W. & W. D. Hewitt; and by 1908 he is partner in Hewitt, Stevens & Paist, with partners William D. Hewitt and Phineas Paist. Some independent projects do appear for Stevens by 1909, and he continues with independent projects at least through 1935.
Stevens became a member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the AIA in 1907.
Please note: Citations do appear in the Spring Garden Institute Annual Reports for 1884 and 1886 indicating that a B. R. Stevens had received prizes for the annual architectural drawing competition. It is possible that this is Benjamin Rush Stevens, but no documentation has been found so far to prove that training.
