Formatted Abstract/Summary
The Wilson Architects Collection consist of architectural plans of residential and commercial buildings from architectural firms:
• Alex B. and R. Martin Wilson, Architects and Architectural Engineers
• R.M. Wilson and Son.

Alexander Brown Wilson was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1857. In 1864 his family emigrated to Brisbane. He established his own architectural practice in Brisbane in 1884, and was joined by his architect-engineer son, Ronald Martin Wilson in 1920 under the firm Alex B. and R. Martin Wilson, Architects and Architectural Engineers.

Ronald received a Bachelor of Engineering at the University of Queensland in 1915 and won the Walter and Eliza Hill Travelling Fellowship allowing him to study architectural engineering in the United States from 1915 to 1917. He went on to London and studied at the Architectural Association as well as completing a town planning course at London University.

After Alexander Wilson's retirement in 1928, Ronald Wilson continued the practice until 1955. He in turn was joined by his son, Blair M. Wilson, who had also graduated from the University of Queensland, under the frim of R.M. Wilson and Son.

The Wilson firm is continued by Alexander Wilson's great-grandson, Hamilton Blair Wilson.
