Maxwell, Edward

Maxwell, Edward (1867–1923). Canadian architect. He was skilled at mixing the round-arched and Italianate styles (e.g. Henry Birks Store, Montréal, 1893–4). He entered into partnership with his brother, William Sutherland Maxwell (1874–1952—who had trained at the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris), in 1902, and together they produced many confident Classical designs (e.g. the Saskatchewan Legislative Building, Regina (1907–10), the J. K. L. Ross House, Montréal (1908–9), and the Montréal Art Association Gallery (1910–12)). Their additions to Bruce Price's (1845–1903) Château Frontenac Hotel, Québec (1892–3), included the St-Louis Wing and Tower Block (1920–4), in which a mixture of the French château style and elements derived from Scots fortified houses encapsulated the importance of Scots settlers and French colonization in the history of Canada. The firm had an enormous and successful practice, designing many commercial and other building-types.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
