Biographical Note

Sir Edward Brantwood Maufe (1882-1974) was a renowned British architect. Maufe became an associate member of the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1910 following his completion of a Bachelor of Arts degree from St John's College, Oxford. Maufe received his first recognition as an architect upon the completion of two buildings: St Bede at Clapham in 1923 and St Saviour's at Acton in 1926. Both buildings were constructed for the Royal Association in Aid of the Deaf and Dumb.

From 1943 until 1969 Maufe was the first principal architect for the United Kingdom. During this period, Maufe became chief architect and artistic adviser to the Imperial War Graves Commission and received a Royal Gold Medal for architecture in 1944. Additionally, for his services to the Imperial War Graves Commission, Maufe received a knighthood in 1954. Maufe's architecture was featured in several prominent buildings throughout England and Ireland including the war damaged Middle Temple and Gray's Inn, Trinity College and St. John's College, various war memorials, the new Guildford Cathedral, and several other cathedrals. Maufe's work was described as having an open minded traditionalism with well mannered modernism.
