Basic Biographical Details

Designation: Architectural practice
Started: 1907

Bio Notes: Arthur Gordon Wilson was born in 1882 and studied at University College, Dundee from 1899 with a view to entering the architectural profession. In January 1901 he began an articled apprenticeship to John Murray Robertson in Dundee, and when Robertson died on the 31st of that month his articles were taken over by Robertson's successors, James Findlay and David Smith. At the end of his apprenticeship Wilson remained as an assistant for one year prior to emigrating to Canada in 1906, where he secured a post as assistant to Stevenson & Paterson of Winnipeg. He commenced independent practice there in 1907 in partnership with the slightly older D Easton Herrald (born 1880/81). The firm moved to Strathcona, Alberta the following year, and opened a branch office in Edmonton in 1910. The latter seems to have become the main office as 16 Credit Foncier, Edmonton was the address he gave when admitted LRIBA on 24 June 1912, his proposers being John Donald Mills, Godfrey Daniel Bower Shepherd and his teacher at Dundee Technical College, Patrick Hill Thoms. The firm's work incorporated public, commercial, residential and ecclesiastical buildings.

The partnership was dissolved in 1923 at which point Herrald moved to Califormia to practice on his own.
