Glenn McArthur

Glenn McArthur's interest in William Thomas was developed while attending the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, where, in order to pay for his schooling, he worked as a night guard at the Don Jail. Those long and occasionally quiet nights were spent patrolling the rather gloomy corridors, avoiding as much as possible the nocturnal inhabitants, including inmates, or sketching the architectural details of the building.

A deep impression of the architect's work was instilled in him. This led to a line of enquiry that has taken twelve years of research, writing, photographing and illustrating Thomas's buildings on both sides of the Atlantic.
