Paul Brandner, born in Weissdorf, Bavaria, and came to America in 1883. Brandner appears in the Philadelphia city directories from 1886 to 1891. References in the Philadelphia Real Estate Record and Builders Guide also begin to appear in 1886 with a number of commissions associated with the German community in Philadelphia, including an unsuccessful 1887 submission for the new German Society Building, a competition which he lost to William Gette. For most of his stay in Philadelphia Brandner maintained an office at 532 Walnut Street. However, he would not remain long in Philadelphia after the German Society competition. By 1890 he had moved to New York City, where he would establish a firm which specialized in public halls. He would continue in the New York city directories through 1900.
