Biographical history

James Robert Rhind was born in Inverness, Scotland in 1853 and trained in the office of his brother John Rhind (1836-1889) in that city. He later went to London and was principal assistant to Isaacs & Florence, then worked as assistant superintendent for Boulnois & Warner. He opened an office in London in 1880, but moved to Canada in 1888 and settled in Montreal where he was 'local architect in charge' of the Royal Victoria Hospital (1890-93), an institutional landmark designed by H. Saxon Snell. After completion of this project in 1893 Rhind remained in Montreal until May 1895, then returned to Scotland where he succeeded in obtaining several commissions for Carnegie library buildings in Glasgow in 1903-06. Rhind died in Inverness on 10 January 1918.
