16 Sep Underhill Brothers graduate and start articling
Clare graduates as a Civil Engineer in 1911. J.T. graduates from McGill University College, Vancouver as a Civil Engineer. McGill University College was the predecessor to UBC, which wasn’t established until 1915. Following University, the brothers enter their articles to become Land Surveyors in BC.
Clare articles to E.H. Cleveland, PLS, of the firm Cleveland & Cameron, established in 1910. Mr. Cleveland went on to be the first Chief Engineer of the Greater Vancouver Water District from 1926 to 1952. The Cleveland Dam on the Capilano River, in North Vancouver, was named after him.
J.T. articled first under G.H. Dawson, PLS, and then M.W. Hewitt, BCLS, when Mr. Dawson was appointed Surveyor General. Dawson and Hewitt were both from the firm Elliott & Hewitt, which at that time was located at the Williams Building, 413 Granville St., Vancouver. That firm was founded in 1886 as Williams Bros. & George Dawson and continues to operate today as Chapman Land Surveying Ltd. in West Vancouver.
