Biographical history

Harry Patten Archibald was born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. He received his B.A.Sc. in electrical engineering in 1898. In 1904 he joined with Henry Arthur Bayfield to establish the Vancouver firm of Bayfield and Archibald, consulting, supervising and designing engineers. Archibald acted as a consulting engineer on the fire hydrant system for Dawson City Water and Power Company in 1906, a consulting engineer for Dominion Wood Pipe Co. of New Westminster in 1907 and 1908. In later years he worked on many other projects, such as West Coast Woollen Mills, the B.C. Electric Company's streetcar system in Vancouver, and the Greater Vancouver and Greater Victoria water systems. During World War I he was a shell examiner in Vancouver and for the Winchester Repeating Arms Company in Connecticut. After the War he returned to private practice in Bayfield and Archibald.
