Name of creator
Canadian Architect is the official Journal of Record of Architecture Canada / RAIC. The magazine is a specialized monthly periodical for architects, planners and related professionals published in Don Mills, Ontario. The magazine features articles on current trends and issues affecting architectural practice in Canada, including the development of new building technologies and changing social needs. Canadian Architect also serves as the Journal of Record for the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, publishing its newsletters and bulletins, and publicizing issues that concern both national and provincial architectural associations .In 1968, Canadian Architect established the Awards of Excellence for architectural design. The awards are juried by a panel of professionals and are awarded annually to architects registered in Canada in the December issue of the magazine. The competition entries are restricted to un-built projects, allowing the panel to focus their judgment on the plans, intentions and original ideas of the architect. Canadian Architect was first published in 1955 by MacLean-Hunter Limited under the editorial direction of James A. Murray as The Canadian Architect. In the early 1960s Southam Business Communications Inc. took over publication, and the magazine dropped the word “the” from its name in 1995.
Scope and content
This series contains photographs of people associated with and featured in the Canadian Architect Magazine. Many of the photographs appear to have been used or consulted as part of the magazine proofs. The photographs contained within this series range from the 1950s up until 1995 and consist of portraits, candids, and posed group photographs. Additionally, many of the photographs in this series do not contain dates or inscriptions.
At some point, prior to this description, these images appear to have been removed from their original order and separated out due to subject matter. This series was created because it was no longer possible to arrange these materials in their original, working order.
