Memorable Manitobans: William N. Melville (1876-?)

Architect.

Born in Scotland in May 1876, he emigrated to Canada in 1901 and, two years later, joined his older brother Alexander D. Melville in an architectural partnership that was responsible for designing most of Winnipeg’s fire halls. The partnership appears to have dissolved by early 1914 and no information on his whereabouts after this time have been found.
