Manitoba Organization: Manitoba Association of Architects

The Manitoba Association of Architects was established at a meeting of some 35 architects on 25 May 1906 in the Manitoba Hall at 291-295 Portage Avenue (now since demolished). A constitution was adopted, by-laws began to be written, and a founding slate of officers was elected: S. F. Peters (President), J. H. G. Russell (First Vice-President), C. H. Wheeler (Second Vice-President), L. T. Bristow (Treasurer), and W. P. Over (Secretary), with J. D. Atchison, J. Chisholm, W. Elliott, J. Greenfield, and S. Hooper as Directors. The new organization’s first annual meeting was held on 16 November 1906.
