HENRY, Edgar Alfred

Born: 1868
Died: ?


Henry was born in Sydney, Australia and practised in Australia for four years before coming to South Africa. While in Australia he won the competitions for Auburn Town Hall, Sydney, and Hay Town Hall, New South Wales, Australia. He arrived in Natal in 1900, became a founder member of the NIA in 1901 and was in partnership with C HILL (cf HENRY & HILL) from about 1902 until 1906 when the partnership was terminated. Henry continued to practise on his own account until 1907. He was elected to the committee of the Natal Institute of Architects but, at the end of 1907 or the beginning of 1908, he left Natal owing to the depression. Nothing more is recorded of him in South Africa.
