Biography

Levi Tucker Scofield (originally Schofield) (1842–1917) was a prominent Cleveland, Ohio architect and sculptor, and a native of the city. He served in the American Civil War and designed many public buildings and several monuments during his career. He was a third generation Cleveland resident and the Scofield Building, which he designed, is named after him. His Cleveland home is also still in existence.
He had two sons, William Marshall Scofield (1868–1942) and Sherman Wright Scofield (1876–1942) who became members of his architectural firm. The Scofields were members of First Baptist Church and were buried in Lake View Cemetery.
