Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architect of Edinburgh and Belfast, for whom see www.scottisharchitects.org.uk. Edward Blount, who had been a pupil and assistant in the office of Rowand Anderson & Paul in Edinburgh, came to Belfast in 1929 to work as an architect in the Department of Works & Public Buildings. He was still in the post when he was elected a licentiate of the RIBA in 1931(1) but appears to have left soon afterwards; he is not listed among the staff of the department in Thom's Directory for 1933.

RIBA: elected licentiate, 11 May 1931, having been proposed by John Begg and the President and Honorary Secretary of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland.(2)
