Additional Information:From the Madison Intensive Survey report:

"The partnership of James O. Gordon and Frederick W. Paunack began in January of 1892. Gordon had been in business in Madison as a an architect for two years at that time. The firm proved to be one of Madison's most successful architectural firms during the boom growth period of the turn of the century. The association lasted until four months before Paunack's early death in 1904. For those four months, Paunack was in association with a cousin. Gordon then practiced with his son, James C. Gordon, in the firm of James O. Gordon and Son. In an article from 1899, the firm was said to have made a specialty of residences., The know designs for which Gordon and Pauncak were responsible constitute one of Madison's largest identified bodies of work from the period."
