[First Mention, T-Square Club Competition]
An Advertising Kiosk
(by Edmund H. Poggi, 1902)
Although equally well-known for his work in the Wilkes-Barre, PA, area, where he maintained an office for many years, Edmund H. Poggi gained recognition in Philadelphia during the 1920s. Poggi had received his office experience with such disparate architects and firms as Bruce Price and Cass Gilbert of New York, Cope & Stewardson of Philadelphia, and Rutan & Russell in Pittsburgh; he first resided and worked from 1901 to 1906 in Philadelphia. However, by 1909 Poggi had become part of the office of Welsh, Sturdevant & Poggi in Wilkes-Barre. By 1914 this firm had evolved into Sturdevant & Poggi, and by 1922 Poggi was working alone in Wilkes-Barre. The 1924 Philadelphia city directory lists Poggi in Philadelphia as an architect with Bissell & Sinkler; and by 1927 Poggi and his new partner Arthur H. Winters were practicing as Poggi & Winters, agents for Detroit architect C. Howard Crane. At the time of Poggi's last listing in city directories (1929), he was employed by Rankin & Kellogg.
Poggi was a member of the T-Square Club in Philadelphia and of the Westmoreland Club in Wilkes-Barre, PA.
