  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: His father, A.E. Severance, was a physician. In 1910 F.A. Severance was living and working as a photographer in Portland, OR, according to the US census that year. His 1912 marriage registration record states he was residing in Vancouver and working as a photographer. He was listed, perhaps in error, as a photographer in the 1921 BC business directory. He moved to Seattle, WA, possibly in the late 1910s, as he registered for the US World War One draft in 1918 while living in Seattle.
