Professional History


Partner, [Frank T.] Shea and Lofquist, San Francisco, CA, 1907-1921.

Lofquist was listed as an architect living in San Francisco in 1924. in the San Francisco, California, City Directory, 1924, (p. 889), but he did not have a firm of his own listed in the same volume's classified business directory. (San Francisco, California, City Directory, 1924, p. 1515.) This may have meant that he worked for another firm at this time.



Born in Sweden, John Lofquist came to the US in about 1880, according to the 1910 US Census.

In 1910, Lofquist lived in an apartment building at 314 Post Street in San Francisco. (See, Source Citation Year: 1910; Census Place: San Francisco Assembly District 44, San Francisco, California; Roll: T624_102; Page: 2a; Enumeration District: 0304; FHL microfilm: 1374115, accessed 01/22/2024.)

In 1924, Lofquist and his wife lived at 362 28th Avenue in San Francisco. (See San Francisco, California, City Directory, 1924, p. 889.)

The architect died on 02/18/1941 and was buried at the Cypress Lawn Memorial Park in Colma, CA.
