Dozer & McClain

Leonard A. Dozer, one of four children born to Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Dozer, was born on June 24, 1871 in Zanesville, Ohio. His interest in photography began in 1889 as a student of C. A. Gribble, who operated a studio in Fostoria, Ohio. Specializing in operating and retouching, Mr. Dozer honed his skills throughout Ohio before settling in Bucyrus (population approximately 7,000) in 1892 (some sources report 1893) and opened his own successful studio on North Sandusky Avenue. Born in 1868, E. L. McClain, about whom very little biographical information exists, began studying photography at the age of 14 in Greensburg, Indiana, under the tutelage of Louis Moberly. He established his professional reputation by working with some of the most prominent photographers in Indiana and neighboring Ohio. When he relocated to Bucyrus in September 1894, Mr. McClain met and quickly formed a partnership with Mr. Dozer. On December 10, 1894, Dozer & McClain opened their new studio at a location recently vacated by photographer W. N. Brenner.
