Formatted abstract
This thesis is a record of the life and work of John William Wilson, architect of Rockhampton from 1874 to 1915. As the senior architect of the town his long practice in the area contributed many prominent buildings in Rockhampton's historic streetscape. The thesis has expanded the body of knowledge on J. W. Wilson and identifed the extent of his work. Two hundred and one projects from Wilson's practice have been identified and catalogued detailing, where known, the name of the building or works, date, client, location, cost, and a description. This information is based on a collection of papers concerning the life and work of J. W. Wilson from the Library of the Capricornia Institute of Advanced Education, and from selective indexing of local newspapers and relevant secondary sources. Those buildings still existing have been located by field research. It concludes that Wilson had a consistent and prominent role in Rockhampton's history as the competent and practical architect of much of its fine building heritage.
