English architect, of London, for whom see Directory of British Architects 1834-1914 (RIBA 2001), I, 653. Charles Horatio Flack was one of the five shortlisted entrants in the first competition for the Museum of Science and Art, Dublin, 1881-1882.(1) The fact that all five shortlisted candidates were English gave rise to controversy, and a second competition was held. Flack was awarded compensation of £150.(2)
