General note

Material in this archive is organized within the schema of the Edward Maxwell archive (see CAC 2).

Material in this archive records the activities of the Maxwell firm from 1899-1901. When Edward Maxwell's busy practice required extra assistance, George Cutler Shattuck (1864-1923) arrived from Boston to become a partner in the firm around 1899. Maxwell and Shattuck became acquainted when they worked together in the firm of Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge. Their professional association was brief, ending when William Sutherland Maxwell became Edward's partner in 1901. Nevertheless, some important commissions were undertaken during this time including the additions and alterations to Windsor Station in Montreal and the house for Louis-Joseph Forget in Senneville, PQ. Shattuck's other major professional activities took place in Boston where he became a partner with Charles A. Coolidge in 1914 and where he remained until his death.

General note

Ce matériel est organisé selon le plan du fonds Edward Maxwell (voir CAC 2).

Le matériel de ce fonds témoigne des activités du cabinet Maxwell de 1899 à 1901. Lorsque Edward Maxwell, devenu très occupé, eut besoin de personnel supplémentaire, George Cutler Shattuck (1864-1923) vint de Boston se joindre à son cabinet vers 1899. Maxwell et Shattuck s'étaient connus à l'époque où ils avaient tous deux travaillé pour le cabinet de Shepley, Rutan et Coolidge. Leur association professionnelle fut brève et prit fin lorsque William Sutherland Maxwell devint l'associé d'Edward en 1901. Certains projets importants datent néanmoins de cette période et notamment les annexes et modifications à la gare Windsor de Montréal, et une maison pour Louis-Joseph Forget à Senneville (Québec). Shattuck retourna par la suite à Boston où il devint l'associé de Charles A. Coolidge en 1914, association qui dura jusqu'à son décès.
