             Architect Ernest L. Norberg and his associate, Architect Thos. M. Edwards, with offices in the Phelan Building, San Francisco, have through their branch office in he Bank Building at Burlingame established a thriving clientele in this community.  Judging from the number of public and private buildings already constructed from their designs and under their supervision, the future prominence of this firm is assured.

             Mr. Norberg’s early architectural training was obtained at Hopkins Art Institute, and later under the American Society of Beaux Arts.  He was afterward associated with the most prominent architects of San Francisco, including Willis Polk, whom he assisted in designing such magnificent structures as the new Hobart Building and the Templeton Crocker resident in Hillsborough.

             Mr. Norberg is well known in Club circles, being a member of the San Mateo Elks, Peninsula Club, California Auto Association, the San Francisco Architects Club and was recently highly honored by being elected a Chapter Member of the American Institute of Architects.  He has always taken active interest in public affairs and is at present a member of the Burlingame Park Commission.  Mr. Norberg is a native of Omaha, Nebraska, but has resided in San Mateo County for the past nine years.
