Reg No: 266
Year registered: 1927

NIA (1927); ISAA (1927).

Currently nothing is known of Cornelius's origins nor his training, although it is quite likely that he was related to W Cornelius, a builder and contractor working in Durban. He registered with the Institute of South African Architects in 1927 and entered into partnership with J MEANWELL (cf. CORNELIUS & MEANWELL) in Durban around 1930. He was not listed in Durban after 1932. He left Durban for Cape Town (c1932?) where his address in 1934/35 was c/o the Town Planning Branch, City Hall, Cape Town. He remained, however, a salaried member of the Natal Provincial Institute of Architects from 1934 to 1935. Cornelius enlisted for active service during the Second World War. In 1959 he is listed as a salaried member of the NIA, although with an address in the Cape,namely 'Storeen' c/o Grotto and Fountain Road, Rondebosch where he is still recorded in 1969.
