Notable Architects And Builders In Victoria History
Percy Fox (1877-1939) came to Victoria from England in 1911 and worked briefly for Thomas Hooper before starting his own architectural practice in January 1912. In 1913 he formed a partnership with Ralph Berrill.
He served as President of the Architectural Institute of British Columbia in 1928-29. He was the third architect to register with Architectural Institute of British Columbia when it was first formed. The first two were Andrew Lamb Mercer and Charles Elwood Watkins. Here is a partial listing of his projects.
