Adamson, James Edward

ADAMSON, James Edward (fl. 1907-20), was active in Montreal and a capable designer who executed many commissions in a Beaux Arts style. He was briefly in partnership with a 'Mr. Sparrow' in November of 1907, but by May 1908 he was operating a practice under his own name. In 1913 he prepared an ambitious and flamboyant proposal for a ten storey hotel at the corner of Cypress Street and Stanley Street, but this project may not have been realized (C.R., xxvii, 8 Jan. 1913, 49, illus. & descrip; Daily Witness [Montreal], 18 Jan. 1913, illus.). No biographical information on this architect has been found.
