WALLACE, Herbert Alexander Craig

Born: ?
Died: 1939 10 ?


Trained in London and came to South Africa (n.d.) where he worked as an architectural assistant in Cape Town Municipality. He later became chief assistant architect to Kalk Bay/Muizenberg Municipality. After a few years at the Cape he was appointed chief assistant architect to Bloemfontein Town Council. His obituary in the South African Builder (Oct 1939:57) stated that he was 'originally assistant city engineer for Bloemfontein.' In about 1925 Wallace appears to have set up practice on his own account in Bloemfontein where in 1928 he won the open competition for the South African Mutual Building, Bloemfontein, which was executed in partnership with GA STEWART (cf WALLACE & STEWART). Wallace was an enthusiastic freemason and was elected the first reigning Master of the Emerald Lodge in Bloemfontein.
