Professional History


Draftsman, Shea and Shea, Architects, San Francisco, CA, c. 1894. According to the San Francisco Call, Smith O'Brien and fellow draftsman Theodre F. Laist filed suit against Frank T. Shea for libel in 1894. It wrote: "Theodore F. Laist and Smith O'Brien, the two discharged employes [sic] of Architect Shea, have filed suits against Frank T. Shea, Hugh Hume, and the Evening Post Company, to recover $10,000 damages each for libel. The trouble arises from an article recently published in the Evening Post, which connectedthe dismissal of Laist and O'Brien with the disappearance of some valuable sketches from Architect Shea's office."(See San Francisco Call, vol. 76, no. 42, 07/12/1894, p. 10.)
