Administrative / Biographical History

After leaving Liverpool School of Architecture at the University of Liverpool, Percy Johnson-Marshall, along with fellow former student Robert H Shaw, were instrumental in setting up the Liverpool School of Architecture Society as a club for former students. He established the club collected names and addresses and organised an inaugural dinner on the 25 March 1938  which over 50 attended. At this dinner a committee was formed to administer the club, with Professor Lionel Bailey Budden as President, Robert Joseph Gardner-Medwin amongst the Executive Committee and Percy Johnson-Marshall as the Honorary Secretary .
