(1875–1960). English architect. A pupil of Belcher, he set up a practice in 1898 and designed a number of electricity-generating stations, houses, and cottages (notably at Letchworth Garden City and Hampstead Garden Suburb). He became a partner in the London firm of Dunn and Watson (1912), responsible for several accomplished Classical buildings, including Wolseley House of 1921 (later Barclays Bank) and the National Westminster Bank (with details derived from Peruzzi), both in Piccadilly, and the Scottish Provident Institution, Pall Mall (with elements derived from Michelangelo's New Sacristy, San Lorenzo, Florence). In the 1930s he designed the exterior and interiors of the Dorchester Hotel, London, the structure of which was by Owen Williams. He also designed churches (e.g. St Christopher, Cove, Hants. (1934)).
