Whitehead, Herbert Thomas

WHITEHEAD, Herbert Thomas (1882-1936), an obscure figure active in Victoria, B.C. where he designed his own house in 1913. This project was a discriminating essay in the California bungalow style with half-timber gables incorporated into the wood frame construction, a device he employed on other commissions for small apartment buildings near the downtown area. No information can be found on his activity after 1914 (D. Luxton, Building the West: The Early Architects of British Columbia, 2003, 486, 523).
