Name: Knox & Elliot

Birth/Established: 1895   Death/Dissolved: 1928

 


Biography:  
  Wilm Knox and John Elliot moved to Toronto from Chicago in 1888 with an office at 15 Victoria Street. E. Beaumont Jarvis joined the firm In Toronto where it was known as Knox, Elliot & Jarvis. The firm won the competition for the design of the Richardsonian Romanesque Confederation Life office building in 1889. They also competed for and lost the competition for the Toronto Board of Trade. Knox & Elliot moved to Cleveland in 1893. A May 22, 1902 Plain Dealer article highlighted the firm's designs for manufacturing plants. The firm is remembered for its office buildings with Sullivanesque ornamentation, including the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, Rockefeller, and Standard Buildings. These buildings contrasted with the prevalent Beaux-Arts and Neo Classic-style buildings of the day.
