George W. Northwood arrived in Winnipeg in 1905 after studies in Montreal. He had a distinguished military career during World War I, then joined in partnership with another decorated veteran, Brigadier Major Cyril W.U. Chivers. Their architectural firm was responsible for many of the city’s outstanding commercial and public projects in the 1920s and 1930s. Northwood also served on the boards of the Manitoba Association of Architects, Manitoba Club and Sanatorium Board, and as the province’s representative to Dominion government discussions about post-war relief programs.
