Eugene Malmer has been a resident of Aurora from the day of his birth. March 25, 1873. He attended the public schools here and subsequently graduated from the Aurora High School. After that he entered the Chicago School of Architecture, completing the course and receiving his diploma in 1894. Obtaining a place with architect W. A. Otis of Chicago he soon advanced to the place of head draughtsman. After holding this position for a number of years he passed the state architectual examination and left the office to assume charge of the construction of the new public library building at Aurora. After completing the work, Mr. Malmer opened his own office in Aurora, where he is now one of the leading architects.


As a member of the local Swedish Lutheran church, Mr. Malmer has been elected on the board of trustees and is now serving as church treasurer.
