Basic Biographical Details

Name: Honeyman & Jack
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: 1937
Ended: 1947(?)
Bio Notes: James Maclaren Honeyman (born 1890), who had continued the practice of John Bennie Wilson and John Archibald Wilson as John B Wilson Son & Honeyman after the deaths of the Wilsons in 1923 and 1926 respectively, took William Archibald Park Jack (born 1912) into partnership in 1937, the firm's name changing to Honeyman & Jack. The practice went into abeyance during the Second World War, Honeyman serving as a Regional Officer with the Ministry of Works and Jack as a Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve, until 1946 when the partnership resumed. The following year Jack's brother-in-law George William Robertson (born 1902) became a partner, the firm thereafter becoming Honeyman, Jack & Robertson. During the ensuing years the practice was involved mainly in factory work and in further jobs for the Ministry of Works.
