Maurice B. Adams (1849-1933)

After completing his articles with H.N. Goulty of Brighton, Maurice B. Adams became assistant to William Ralph Emerson, and Architect to Brighton Council. Between 1872 and 1923 he was Editor of Building News. He instituted the Building News Designing Club, which enabled young architects to submit designs for his criticism. He contributed largely to the paper’s illustrations, redrawing designs for lithographic reproduction, and covered a wide range of subjects in a skillful and accurate linear style. He also published several architectural books.
