Currently not a great deal is known about JM Wilson. It would appear that he studied at the University of the Witwatersrand and as a student was a member of the Alpha Club. He registered with the Institute of South African Architects in 1927 and by 1939/1940 he was working in the Architects' Department, City Hall, Cape Town. He volunteered for active service on the outbreak of the Second World War during which he was awarded the MC. In 1959 he is recorded as a retired member of the Cape Institute, of address 22 Avenue Bartholomew, Sea Point, Cape Tow. He resigned from the ISAA in 1961.
