The Newsom Brothers or Newsoms in architecture may refer to:

The 1876 directory lists Newsom Brothers as J.J. Newsom and S. Newsom, and Thomas Newsom as "with" the Newsom Brothers. Apparently Joseph Cather was the oldest brother.

There was also:

  • John J. Newsom, who (along with William Hoagland) designed the Pardee Home. In 1898 a J.J. Newsom was in a dispute over payment for drawing plans for a city prison (see March 22, 1898 Oakland Tribune)
  • And the ? directory refers to A.L. and Thomas P. Newsom (died February 1, 1912; may have been John J. Newsom's brother; worked with son Merrill Newsom), architects, as well as Joseph C. and John J.
  • Sidney B. Newsom who designed Primorosa Apartments for J.C. McMullen.

[ Still putting together the family tree...complicated, as there were lots of brothers, and lots names repeated between generations. ]
