Basic Biographical Details

Name: Edward Hamilton Bloomfield
Designation: Architect
Bio Notes: Edward Hamilton Bloomfield was articled to Hamilton Neil in 1913, studying at Glasgow School of Architecture. He remained as draughtsman after completing his apprenticeship, and does not appear to have undertaken war service. In 1918 he was appointed chief assistant to Claude Cornelius Tom Warnes, Government Architect, in Leith. Two years later he moved to Manchester where he studied at Manchester School of Art and was engaged on 'Public Works Contracts', and in 1921 he moved again, this time to London, to fulfil a similar post. He passed the qualifying exam there in December 1921 and was admitted ARIBA early the following year, his proposers being Hamilton Neil, John Watson and William Brown Whitie. His nomination papers indicate that although he was based in London at the time, he maintained a 'permanent' address in Glasgow.
