General Notes (Husband)

Montana Samual was an important Denver architect who routinely received high status commissions during the first three decades of the 20th century. Catherine Stein, his wife, was the daughter of his first partner Mr. John Stein. They formed the Fallis Stein architectural firm in 1905.

Montana invented a safty device for measuring drafts in smelting flues called the "Fallis Manomenter"

He studied architecture at Illinois College in Jacksonville, Illinois and graduated with honors in 1886. Upon graduation he moved to Denver and entered the architectural firm of Frank Edbrooke, the foremost Denver architect of the late 19th century. Here he worked as a construction engineer on Edbrooke's larger building designs. He left Edbrooke in 1898 to become the chief construction engineer for the American Smelting Company where he invented the smelting device.

His two most important buildings stand today. They are the Mayan Theater and the Buerger Brothers Building. They were both built in 1929 and 1930. Both building are listed on the National Registry of Historical Building.
