Administrative history

Horwood and White was a Toronto, Ontario based architectural firm which existed from 1919 to 1969 and designed a variety of buildings across Canada.

Horwood and White was established in 1919 as the successor to Burke, Horwood and White, following on the death of Edmund Burke in January of that year.

The company carried on the work of its predecessor firm in department stores, commercial buildings, churches, industrial plants and residences. In Vancouver, the firm continued the work begun by Burke, Horwood and White on the Hudson's Bay Company store on West Georgia Street, designing a number of additions and alterations to the original building in the 1920s.

Following the partners' deaths in the 1930's, the firm retained the name Horwood and White and continued under Horwood's son, Eric Compton Horwood (1900-1984), and S. Solomon Van Raalte (1882-1956). When Eric Horwood retired in 1969, the firm was wound up.
