Biographical history

Alexander Francis Dunlop (1842-1923) was a native of Montreal. He studied architecture in Montreal and New York, apprenticing with the Montreal architects George and John James Brown. From 1871 until 1874 Dunlop worked in Detroit, returning to Montreal to set up a practice in 1874. His most important public commission was the design of St. James Methodist Church in 1886. Dunlop had an extensive practice and he designed a number of houses, hotels, schools and factories in Montreal. Among the students who worked for his office were Edward Maxwell (1867-1923) and Robert Findlay (18591951). Dunlop was one of the original members of the Royal Canadian Academy in 1880. He was a member of the organizing committee of the Province of Quebec Association of Architects and a founding member and first president of the Royal Architecture Institute of Canada from 1907 to 1910. The A.F. Dunlop Scholarships in the McGill School of Architecture were set up in his memory.
