Biographical dictionary of musicians: with a bibliography of english writings on music (classic repri - Biographical dictionary - Wikipedia



The focus of this Canadian website is on the activity and contribution of those who have described themselves, or who have advertised themselves to be, an architect, either amateur or professional, and it intentionally excludes those who work in a related trade such as a builder, contractor, entrepreneur, carpenter, surveyor or mason.

This website is intended to be an authoritative work of reference for the history of Canadian architecture during the study period of 1800 to 1950, and it contains biographies of over 2,400 architects who lived and worked in Canada as well as those architects who resided in the United States, Britain and elsewhere, and for whom it is now possible to link their names with buildings constructed in this country.

It is inexplicable that, despite the voluminous number of books on Canadian art and artists, that fewer than 20 monographs exist on Canadian architects from the study period of this Dictionary. Even more puzzling is the fact that internationally renowned Canadian architects such as Frank Darling (winner of the British R.I.B.A. Gold Medal in 1915) and Henry Sproatt (winner of an American A.I.A. Medal in 1924) have yet to be the subject of a monograph devoted to their career and work. The reasons for this may be linked directly to the lack of accurate and easily accessible source information which, in many cases, is presented here for the first time.

Contained within this web folio are brief biographical sketches and photographs of prominent people of the Great War era.


The entries are arranged alphabetically by surname.
Prefixes, such as von, de, le, etc. are not considered.
Friedrich von Bernhardi, for instance, would be found under 'B' and not 'V.'
