This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Levi Tucker Scofield (originally Schofield) (born 1842 died 1917) was a prominent Cleveland, Ohio architect and a native of the city.  He served in the U.S. Civil war and designed many public buildings and several monuments during his career.  He was a third generation Cleveland resident and the Scofield Building, which he designed, is named after him. His Cleveland home is also still in existence.

In Columbus, Ohio "he created the one piece of statuary that nearly every Ohioan who comes to the capital city sees and remembers.  In the statehouse yard stands the Roman matron, Cornelia, mother of the Gracchi, with seven distinguished Ohioans of the Civil War days around her.  She seems to be saying, 'These are my jewels,' symbolic of Ohio's war-time importance. . .' " (Roseboom, 281)

He had two sons, William Marshall Scofield (1868–1942) and Sherman Wright Scofield (1876–1942) who became members of his architectural firm.

Works by Scofield:
    •    Scofield Building (Euclid Ninth Tower) (1902) 2000-2034 East 9th Street [1]
    •    Civil War Soldiers and Sailors Monument (Cuyahoga County Soldiers and Sailors Monument) (1894), at 1999 Ontario Street. Scofield worked on the monument for seven and a half years without compensation and contributed over $57,000 to its cost.
    •    Assylum for the Insane, Athens, Ohio
    •    Assylum for the Insane, Columbus, Ohio
    •    North Carolina Penitentiary
    •    Ohio Penitentiary, Mansfield, Ohio
    •    Cleveland House of Corrections
    •    These are my Jewels, Civil War Monument installed at the Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893, and then moved to the grounds of the Ohio State Capitol
    •    Schofield Vault, Lakeview Cemetery, Scofield is believed to be the architect.

His firm designed five Cleveland Public Schools between 1869 and 1883. He was the first Cleveland architect taken into membership in the American Institute of Architects and was a friend and golfing partner of John D. Rockefeller.
