General note

Avant de s'associer à Charles Elliott Trudeau (né en 1922) et John Bland (né en 1911) au début des années 50, Vincent Jacob Rother (1912-1959) exerçait l'architecture de façon indépendante. Rother a obtenu de l'Université McGill un diplôme en génie (1930) puis un B.Sc. du Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1934). Il a d'abord exercé l'architecture au cabinet de Ross et MacDonald (1928-1929, voir CAC 51.01). Il s'est rendu à Londres (Angleterre) vers 1935 où il a étudié quelque temps à l'Architectural Association avant de travailler avec Knapp Fisher et Jack Rateliffe. Il est revenu à Montréal en 1948, a travaillé de façon autonome quelque temps puis s'est associé avec Bland et Trudeau. Pour une biographie de John Bland, voir l'article CAC 41.04; pour une biographie de Charles Elliott Trudeau, voir l'article CAC 41.06.
