Omaha, Nebraska, 1891-1938


Frederick A. Henninger was born on February 25, 1865 in rural Iowa. His father, Lewis Henninger, was born in Baden, Germany, and his mother, Nancy Noe Henninger, was born in either Ohio, Indiana, or Illinois. He married Bertha Heimbold, a dressmaker and domestic who was also of German descent, in 1895. They had two sons, Fred A., born in 1897, and Ormond L., born in 1904.[13][14]

Frederick Henninger attended the Chicago Art Institute, where it is said he was described as a natural artist. Following two years of study there, he worked as a draftsman for William S. Gray (1851-1927), Architect in Lincoln for one year, and then moved to Omaha where he worked for Frederick C. Ledebrink (1861- ), Architect. By 1896 he had established his own practice in Omaha. One of his first major commissions was the Dairy Building at the Trans-Mississippi & International Exposition of 1898 in Omaha. He was extremely prolific. During one particularly active period in his career he turned out a new plan nearly every day, and earned the title, "house-a-day Henninger."[14]

By 1929, Henninger was joined in practice by his eldest son, Fred A. Henninger, Jr., who also became an architect.[12] He worked for and with his father for many years, moving into design collaboration with him. About 1932 the two formed a partnership, F. A. Henninger & Son, which Fred, Jr., then ran on his own after the elder's retirement to California in 1937. Henninger died in Los Angeles on June 28, 1944.[13][14]

Notes

a. First Omaha directory listing, 1891.

b. Recorded as P. Henninger, but cf. 1908.

c. The 1932 directory records the firm of "Henninger & Son," but the partnership does not show up again in directories until 1937, when it is recorded as "F. A. Henninger & Son."

d. Note however that directories no longer list the elder Henninger in Omaha after 1938, and his license to practice in Nebraska expired at the end of the year it was acquired, December of 1938.[10] His son maintained the "F. A. Henninger & Son" name through 1946, two years after his father's death, then continued in individual practice in Omaha through 1991.

e. This was the only year he appeared in Lincoln directories; his employer was determined from the address. Henninger III also places Henninger in Lincoln, working for Gray, after attending the Chicago Art Institute.14]

f. Noted as a design collaboration between the father and the son.[14]
