A brief notice acknowledging the recent death of Baltimore architect E. J. Blanke in the July 6, 1929, issue of Motion Picture News credited the design of the Rialto Theatre in Washington to him.
A 1906 publication of the Maryland Institute of Mechanic Arts also spells the architect’s surname as Blanke. As he was a member of the faculty at that time, it is likely they got it right.
