"Born in Warren, Illinois on July 21, 1879, Naramore came to architecture from an interest in engineering. His early works included bridges and architectural designs. Around 1900, he pursued an engineering degree from the University of Michigan while working on his first engineering commissions. He continued his education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he received a degree in architecture in 1907. His academic and practical experience provided Naramore with critical skills. From 1909-1912, while working for Portland’s Northwest Bridgeworks, he shined as a talented cost estimator. Cost management was a significant asset, and Naramore soon received a number of commissions that shaped his professional identity."
