Harry Peale, Jr., was born in Philadelphia, studied architecture at the Pennsylvania Museum and School of Industrial Art, and was a draftsman in the office of Frank Miles Day by 1892, when he joined the Philadelphia Chapter of the AIA. In 1889 Peale had also joined the T-Square Club, but he resigned in 1895 when his first independent projecs are recorded in the Philadelphia Real Estate Record and Builders Guide. Peale disappears from the Philadelphia city directories after 1900, but by 1924/25 he re-emerges in Washington, DC, according to the American Art Annual. Judged by the monograph that he published on his work in 1898, Peale completed considerable work in Atlantic City, NJ, and in West Philadelphia.

He joined the national AIA in 1921.
