Administrative/Biographical History

In 1882, Alexander Bruce (1835-1927) and Thomas Henry Morgan (1857-1940) established the Bruce & Morgan architectural firm. A leading architectural firm in Atlanta during the nineteenth century and credited with professionalizing architecture in the state, they specialized in civic buildings, public schools and colleges, and steel-frame skyscrapers. The Bruce and Morgan firm designed the Georgia Institute of Technology administration building, also known as Tech Tower. In 1904, the partnership dissolved when Alexander Bruce's retired. Thomas Morgan continued working with other partners until his retirement in 1930.
