Edward Livingston Palmer, Jr. (1877–1952) worked as the chief architect of the Roland Park Company from 1907-1917. In 1917, he established his own architecture firm and was joined by William D. Lamdin in 1920. For the next 25 years, Palmer and Lambdin designed over 200 homes in Baltimore neighborhoods like Roland Park, Homeland, and Guilford; other notable city buildings, including the Second Presbyterian Church in Guilford and Saint Casimir Church in Canton; and almost 1,000 homes for Bethlehem Steel workers in Dundalk, Baltimore County.
From the time of Lamdin's death in 1945 until his own passing in 1952, Edward Palmer worked with new partners: L. McLane Fisher, Carroll R. Williams, and Charles M. Nes. In 1952, James I. Campbell joined the firm. Additional partners included Richter, Cornbrooks, Hopkins, and Matthai. The firm became a corporation in 1971, known as F.N.C., Inc. By 1972, however, the partnership spilt into two separate firms: Nes, Campbell, and Partners and Richter Cornbrooks Matthai Hopkins, Inc.
