Biographical Sketches of Arnold Dunbar Smith and Cecil Claude Brewer.

 

Arnold Dunbar Smith (1866-1933) was born in Islington in 1866. He apprenticed with J.G. Gibbons of Brighton in 1883 and studied at the Brighton School of Art and the Architectural Association in London. He later entered the Royal Academy Schools in 1890. He worked for Millard & Baggallay between 1884 and 1895 while he continued his studies. During this period, he also traveled in France, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland. He formed a partnership with Cecil Brewer in 1895.

 

Cecil Claude Brewer (1871-1918) was born in 1871 and attended Clifton College for a brief period in 1889. He apprenticed to F.T. Baggallay between 1890 and 1893 while continuing his studies. He attended the University College in London where he received the Donaldson Medal in 1890. From 1891 to 1893 he attended the Architectural Association, winning the silver Medals for 1892 and 1893 as well as the AA Traveling Studentship in 1894. From 1893 to 1898 he studied at the Royal Academy Schools where he won the Gold Medal and Traveling Studentship. It was probably at this time that he met Arnold Smith. He traveled in France, England, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands. Brewer's interest in the Arts and Crafts movement led him to attend the Werkbund exhibition in Cologne.

 

Smith and Brewer formed a partnership in 1895 in London. Both men were members of the Art Workers Guild (Brewer elected in 1901 and Smith elected in c1922) which provided a forum for ideas and encouraged cooperation between architects, artists and craftsmen. Brewer also served on the Art Workers Guild Committee from 1906 to 1907 and was one of the founding leaders of the Design and Industries Association.

 

In 1895, Smith and Brewer won the competition for the Passmore Edwards Settlement in Tavistock Place, London which established their reputation as arts and crafts architects working in the so-called “Free Style” of the 1890s (an attempt to create a new architectural style for England). The firm designed mainly domestic work utilizing vernacular traditions (such as Fives Court, Pinner Middlesex) until 1909 when they won the competition for the National Museum of Wales (1910) in Cathays Park, Cardiff. This monumental building, one of the earliest in Great Britain to utilize the Beaux-Arts style then popular in the United States, signaled a change in direction for the firm. The Arts and Crafts Movement was failing and architects were returning to classicism, particularly for large, public buildings. The innovative design of Heal's Furniture Store (1916), however, suppressed the classical imagery in favor of an honest expression of the steel frame structure of the building.

 

After Brewer's death in 1918, Smith continued the work of the firm and designed many houses as well as additions to the Fitzwilliam Museum (1924-1933). In 1930, J.A. Meikle and K.W.F. Harris became partners under the firm name of A. Dunbar Smith. After Smith's death in 1933, Meikle, Harris and Sidney Clark continued the practice under the original firm name of Smith and Brewer. The firm was dissolved with the death of Clark in 1949.

Scope and Content of the collection

 

The Smith and Brewer Papers contain approximately 5,000 architectural drawings, representing one of the largest holdings of their work. The drawings date from 1896 to 1939, but the bulk of the material is from the 1900s and 1910s. The domestic work of the firm is best represented although the collection contains drawings of the firm's most well-known work, including prints of plans and original sketches for furniture design for the Passmore Edwards Settlement (1896); original drawings for The Fives Court in Pinner (1908); prints for the National Museum of Wales (1910s); drawings for Heal's Store (1916); numerous drawings for various buildings at Armstrong College (1908, 1924, 1927-1932); and extensive documentation for the Fitzwilliam Museum at Cambridge University (1920s-1930s). This collection contains no other types of materials.

 

There are also numerous drawings for domestic projects by A. Harry Heron. It is not known what connection he may have had with the firm or how these drawings came to be included in this material.

Note on Husband: Cecil Claude BREWER (3)

Arnold Dunbar Smith, born in Islington in 1866, was apprenticed to J.G. Gibbons of Brighton in 1883 and studied at the Brighton School of Art and the Architectural Association in London.. He worked for Millard & Baggallay between 1884 and 1895 while he continued his studies and during this time entered the Royal Academy Schools as well as traveling in France, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland.

 

Cecil Claude Brewer, born in 1871, was apprenticed to F.T. Baggallay between 1890 and 1893. After a brief period at the Clifton College (1889) he continued his studies at the University College in London, where he received the Donaldson Medal in 1890, and, from 1891 to 1893 the Architectural Association, winning the silver Medals for 1892 and 1893 as well as the AA Traveling Studentship in 1894. From 1893 to 1898 he studied at the Royal Academy Schools where he won the Gold Medal and Traveling Studentship, He traveled in France, England, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands.

 

Smith and Brewer formed a partnership in 1895 in London and in the same year won the competition for the Passmore Edwards Settlement in Tavistock Place, London which established their reputation as arts and crafts architects working in the so-called "Free Style" of the 1890s (an attempt to create a new architectural style for England).

 

The firm designed mainly domestic work utilising vernacular traditions (such as Fives Court, Pinner Middlesex) until 1909 when they won the competition for the National Museum of Wales (1910) in Cathays Park, Cardiff. This monumental building, one of the earliest in Great Britain to utilize the Beaux-Arts style then popular in the United States, signaled a change in direction for the firm. The Arts and Crafts Movement was failing and architects were returning to classicism, particularly for large, public buildings. The innovative design of Heal's Furniture Store (1916), however, suppressed the classical imagery in favour of an honest expression of the steel frame structure of the building.After Brewer's death in 1918, Smith continued the work of the firm and designed many houses as well as additions to the Fitzwilliam Museum (1924-1933). In 1930, J.A. Meikle and K.W.F. Harris became partners under the firm name of A. Dunbar Smith.

 

After Smith's death in 1933, Meikle, Harris and Sidney Clark continued the practice under the original firm name of Smith and Brewer. The firm was dissolved with the death of Clark in 1949.

Note on Wife: Irene MACDONALD

Irene MacDonald - 1857-1939: Greville gives us almost no information at all about his sister Irene. She did recall for his use in the biography of their parents, the time in Italy that the countryside was subject to several earthquakes over the course of two weeks. Their mother was playing the church organ during the second of the largest quakes. Louisa felt sure the building was going to come down, but rather than cower under a pew, she pulled out all the stops and began to play the Hallelujah Chorus. During this two week period, George MacDonald remained in his study working despite many visitors at his home who had resided to stay out of doors under the olive trees until the shaking had done its worst. Irene recalled one quake at which all the books on her father's shelves had fallen to the floor. "There was a little figure of Christ at the top of one book-case. When all its books were flung to the floor, this figure stood, though it had not been fixed in any way." Irene married a man named Cecil Brewer. She lived to a good old age and died at 82.
