Name of creator
Allan Merrick Jeffers was born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island in 1875. He attended the Rhode Island School of Design before the end of the 19th Century. In 1907, Allan was appointed Alberta's Provincial Architect. In this position, he designed the Alberta Legislature building. He also designed courthouses in Fort Saskatchewan, Wetaskiwin, Cardston, and Calgary. In addition, Allan designed the University of Alberta Arts Building in 1909 and Athabasca Hall in 1911. Following the culmination of his position as Provincial Architect, in 1911, he became Architect for the City of Edmonton. As City Architect, he designed the Civic Block, and the Telephone Exchange Building. Allan married Lotta Annice Moore (1877- 1855) in 1903. They had four children: Ruth, Claire, Merrick, and Gertrude Ann. Allan died in 1926.
