The James McGill Society Presents

Sir Andrew Taylor: McGill's Late Great Victorian Architect

By Susan Wagg

McGill's late-nineteenth-century campus was mainly the work of Scottish-born architect Andrew Taylor (1850-1937) who practiced in Montreal from 1883 to 1904. His relationship with the Redpath family played an important role in his career.

Susan Wagg, MFA, FRSA, is an independent architectural historian and curator. Her most recent book is The Architecture of Andrew Thomas Taylor: Montreal’s Square Mile and Beyond. Her talk will be illustrated.
