Biographical history

Douglas Edwin Kertland (1886-1982) was a Toronto, Ontario architect.

Born in Toronto, he moved with his parents to England where he eventually trained as an architect. He then returned to Canada and worked with the Toronto architect, John M. Lyle. During the First World War, he served overseas as a captain with the Royal Engineers. Later, in 1926, Kertland established his own practice.

Kertland's work included office buildings and hospitals. He also won several competitions, including the design for the Automotive Building at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto.

Kertland was president of the RAIC in 1956 and 1958. He was also an honorary member of both the New Zealand Institute of Architects and the American Association of Architects.

He was married to Gladys McMurrich and, later, to May Warren Bray.
