Raised in Omaha, Neb., he received his degree in architecture from Creighton University. Joseph first set up his architectural practice in Minneapolis, Minn., then moved to California, and finally settled in Oregon in the l890s. For a time, he worked for the firm of Whidden and Lewis, after which he set up his own firm in 1900 and then formed Jacobberger & Smith with his colleague, Alfred H. Smith, in 1912. He designed residences, Catholic churches, and institutional and public buildings and was also Oregon chapter president of the American Institute of Architects (A.I.A.).
