History / Biographical
John T. Findlay was born in Scotland in 1844 and was a prominent architect in Iverness from 1901-1905. He emigrated to Canada in 1907 and settled in St. Thomas, Ontario, where he became a draftsman for Neil R. Darrach. He worked briefly for John L. Thomas, an architect in London, Ontario who had opened a branch office in St. Thomas. In late 1909, Findlay moved to Toronto and spent two years in the office of Ellis & Connery before returning to St. Thomas in 1911 to open an idependent architectural office under his own name. Findlay maintained his practise until 1917. Around this time, he rejoined Neil R. Darrach, who had returned to St. Thomas after working in Regina, Saskatchewan for a brief period. Together they formed a new partnership, Darrach & Findlay, and collaborated until Darrach retired in 1925. Findlay continued to operate his own office until 1947. During the Second World War, Findlay temporarily moved to Ottawa to assist the federal government with designs for wartime structures. He died in St. Thomas on December 20, 1947, and his office was subsequently acquired by George Morley. Some of Findlay's notable designs in St. Thomas and Elgin County include Scott Street Public School, Aldborough School Section No. 11 building, the Talbot Street YMCA building, the Curtis Street YWCA building, Memorial Hospital, Grace United Church, West Lorne town hall and the Port Stanley Public Library, among others.

History / Biographical
Born in Southwold Township in 1850, Neil R. Darrach later moved to St. Thomas during the railway boom and began a career as a noted architect. He opened his office in St. Thomas in 1879, and a few months later was awarded his first contract to design the Centre Street Baptist Church. Over 24 buildings in St. Thomas are recognized as Darrach designs; of note, this includes the First United Church, the Grand Central Hotel, Memorial Hospital, St. Thomas Masonic Hall, Myrtle Street Public School, Balaclava Street Public School and the Mickleborough block in downtown St. Thomas. He desinged several prominent homes in the community including the former Anderson family home on Rosebery Place and the former Gilbert family home on Margarget Street. He was also commissioned to reconstruct the Elgin County Courthouse, after the original building was gutted by fire in 1898. Many of Darrach's buildings now have historical designation including Wellington Street Public school, St. Thomas City hall, Old St. Thomas Public Library, Princess Avenue play house (originally a church), and the former Southern Loan building. From 1911-1917, Darrach moved to Regina, Saskatchewan where he designed a number of notable historic buildings. In 1917, Darrach returned to St. Thomas where he re-entered into partnership with architect John T. Findlay, who was Darrach's associate before he moved to Regina. He remained in St. Thomas until his death in 1926.

History / Biographical
John T. Findlay was born in Scotland in 1844 and was a prominent architect in Iverness from 1901-1905. He emigrated to Canada in 1907 and settled in St. Thomas, Ontario, where he became a draftsman for Neil R. Darrach. He worked briefly for John L. Thomas, an architect in London, Ontario who had opened a branch office in St. Thomas. In late 1909, Findlay moved to Toronto and spent two years in the office of Ellis & Connery before returning to St. Thomas in 1911 to open an idependent architectural office under his own name. Findlay maintained his practise until 1917. Around this time, he rejoined Neil R. Darrach, who had returned to St. Thomas after working in Regina, Saskatchewan for a brief period. Together they formed a new partnership, Darrach & Findlay, and collaborated until Darrach retired in 1925. Findlay continued to operate his own office until 1947. During the Second World War, Findlay temporarily moved to Ottawa to assist the federal government with designs for wartime structures. He died in St. Thomas on December 20, 1947, and his office was subsequently acquired by George Morley. Some of Findlay's notable designs in St. Thomas and Elgin County include Scott Street Public School, Aldborough School Section No. 11 building, the Talbot Street YMCA building, the Curtis Street YWCA building, Memorial Hospital, Grace United Church, West Lorne town hall and the Port Stanley Public Library, among others.
