Basic Biographical Details

Bio Notes: Kendrick Edwards was probably English. He commenced his professional training on 2 January 1890 with a course in Building Construction at the Balfour Institute, Liverpool, passing the South Kensington exams, and in 1893 moved to Glasgow where he studied at the Andersonian College under Charles Gourlay. This was followed by 'private architectural studies' until in May 1900 he began studying engineering under Dr Smith, Professor of Engineering at Belfast College of Technology. He commenced independent practice as an architect and civil engineer in England in 1907, later moving to Ireland. After almost two decades in practice, he sat and passed the qualifying exam in London in July 1926, enabling him to be admitted ARIBA on 29 November that year, with James Lochhead among his proposers (the signatures of the others are undecipherable). By that time he was a member of the Institutes of Civil Engineers, Mechanical Engineers and Structural Engineers, and was living and working in Belfast. Prior to that date he had spent three months visiting Paris, Milan, Rome, Naples, Venice, Florence, Lucerne, Geneva and other locations on the Continent.
