Biographical history

Born in St. Albans, VT, Charles Jewett Saxe (1870-1943) was educated in Montreal and worked as one of the original assistants of the architect Edward Maxwell (1867-1923). He left Maxwell's firm in 1897 to form a partnership with another Maxwell assistant, John Smith Archibald (1872-1934). Saxe and Archibald practised architecture together until 1914. From 1914 until his retirement in 1931 Saxe practised alone except from 1922 to 1927 when he practiced with John Melville Miller (1875-1948). His most noteworthy project was the Beaux-Arts design of the new Court House in Montreal, which he designed with Ernest Cormier.
