Theodor Horydczak - Biographical Information
Little is known about Theodor Horydczak himself. According to the 1930 Census, he was born in Poland in 1889, and the Social Security Death Index lists his death in Montgomery, Pennsylvania, in 1971. With his wife Frederica he had one daughter Norma. He is believed to have taken up photography during or after World War I, possibly while a member of the U.S. Army Signal Corps.
Horydczak's residence in Washington, D.C., spanned the period from the early 1920s to his retirement in 1959. Horydczak's studio logbook opens with a 1921 entry for a photograph of cherry blossoms along the Tidal Basin.
