General note

From 1922 to 1927 Charles Jewett Saxe (1870-1943) and John Melville Miller (1875-1948) practiced architecture from the same Montreal address. Miller was born in Montreal and trained for eight years in the office of the Montreal architect Alexander Francis Dunlop (1842-1923). From 1889 to 1900 Miller worked in Boston. After returning to Montreal Miller practiced in partnership with William Burnet Hutchison (1865-1959) and George Winks Wood (1863-1941) from 1908 until 1918. After his partnership with Hutchison and Wood dissolved Miller practiced alone. Saxe and Miller worked separately except for one project, the 1921 design of a new club house for the Royal Montreal Golf Club in Dorval, PQ. For a biography of Charles Jewett Saxe see the entry for CAC 4.04.

General note

De 1922 à 1927, Charles Jewett Saxe (1870-1943) et John Melville Miller (1875-1948) ont exercé l'architecture ensemble. Miller est né à Montréal et a reçu sa formation en travaillant huit ans au cabinet de l'architecte montréalais Alexander Francis Dunlop (1842-1923). De 1889 à 1900, Miller a travaillé à Boston. Après être revenu à Montréal, il s'est associé à William Burnet Hutchison (1865-1959) et George Winks Wood (1863-1941) de 1908 à 1918. Lorsque l'association avec Hutchison et Wood prit fin, Miller continua d'exercer seul. Saxe et Miller ont travaillé séparément sauf dans le cas d'un projet : la conception, en 1921, du nouveau club house du Royal Montreal Golf Club de Dorval. Pour une biographie de Saxe, voir l'article 4.04.
