Biographical Note / Historical Note

Duane Lyman was born in Lockport on September 9, 1886. He attended Lafayette High School in Buffalo, graduating in 1904, and then went on to study architecture and mechanical engineering at Yale University's Sheffield Scientific School, where he earned his degree in 1908. He spent several years studying in Europe before returning to Buffalo in 1913 to begin with the architectural firm of Lansing & Bley. After military service in World War I, Mr. Lyman became a partner with Lawrence H. Bley in an association which lasted approximately 20 years and resulted in the completion of many notable buildings, such as the Saturn Club, Buffalo Country Club, and several academic buildings at the State University of New York at Buffalo (Main Street campus).
