Frederick B. Roe (1845 – April, 1905) was an American civil engineer and map publisher. Roe was born in Brookfield, Connecticut. Roe was of a generation of cartographers, along with Henry Walling, Frederick Beers, George Colby, J. N Stuart, and others who, taking advantage of the lithography printing revolution, traveled throughout the United States mapping and publishing large scale town and county maps. These were generally sold by subscription and were often printed only in very small runs. Roe seems to have been primarily based in Philadelphia, which was then an important map printing center, but he traveled extensively. He also lived for a time in Reading Pennsylvania, where he served a term on the Common Council. He also lived for a time in Wilmington, Delaware, where he lived while working on a detailed wall map of that region. Roe partnered with George N. Colby in 1873 to issue wall maps of several towns in Maine including New Brunswick, Thomaston, Bath, and Camden. This partnership lasted until about 1878 and maintained offices in Philadelphia at 31 South 6th Street. Later he moved his offices to 17 North 6th Street, Philadelphia. Among his more important works is a detail city plan of Duluth, Minnesota, published with Albertson and Chamberlain. He died in Cincinnati in the last week of April, 1905.
