Edward L. Palmer was born in Baltimore on May 26, 1877. He received degrees from Johns Hopkins University and University of Pennsylvania. Upon graduation, Palmer began working at the Washington DC office of Hornblower and Marshall.

In 1925, he formed the partnership of Palmer, Willis, and Lamdin. Willis left four years later, and Edward Palmer and William Lamdin continued as Palmer and Lamdin from 1929 until Lamdin’s death in 1945. From 1925 until 1926, Palmer would serve as President of the Baltimore Chapter of the AIA. Palmer would go on to become a Fellow of the AIA in 1948. Following Lamdin’s death, Palmer would enter the partnership of Palmer, Fisher, Williams, and Nes. Palmer passed away on May 13, 1952. Palmer’s legacy in Baltimore is unquestionable. In his lifetime, Palmer designed over 200 homes in Roland Park, Guilford, and Homeland. He also created a housing development for the Bethlehem Steel Company. In addition to his affiliation with the AIA, Palmer also was a member of the Baltimore City Planning Commission from 1939 until 1945, and on the Maryland Board of Examiners and Registration for Architects from 1945 until 1952.
