In 11/1917, the Parks School of Character Analysis occupied Room #425 in the Leary Building. The Leary Building stood on the site of the Orpheum Theatre #3, a business owned by the Orpheum Theater Company, an arm of Sullivan and Considine, a joint stock enterprise begun by Tammany Hall political boss Timothy D. Sullivan (1862-1913) and the Seattle theatre boss John Considine (1868-1943). The Orpheum Theatre #3 closed on 04/03/1908. Construction of the Leary Building could begin soon thereafter.
