Description:

"When Marjorie Hill received her degree in architecture in 1920, she was making history. For the Record tells the story of Marjorie Hill and other early women architects in Canada, drawing on archival material and interviews. Researched and written by a group of women architects who graduated from the School of Architecture at the University of Toronto in the late 1940s and 1950s, this is a firsthand account of the challenges faced and work accomplished by these early women architects in Canada. Illustrated throughout with more than 270 photographs and architectural drawings, For the Record brings this untold history to life."--BOOK JACKET.
