Bio Notes: Anthony Charles Tripe was born on 10 December 1907 and was articled to Vivian Palmer Haughton of Wellington, New Zealand from 1926 to 1929. He studied at the Architectural Association in London from 1930 to 1932, passing the final exam in July of the latter year. Two months later he joined the office of George Grey Wornum. He was admitted ARIBA on 3 December 1934, his proposers being Wornum, John Ninian Comper and Howard R Lenton (though the latter two are uncertain as their names are not easily legible). His nomination papers state that he had travelled in Holland and France in 1930, and in Holland, Germany, Austria and Italy in 1931. Studied at AA.

Tripe was presumably a founding partner of the London practice of Tripe & Wakeham. He died in Westminster in late 1953, aged 45. The firm is still in business (2008).
