FULLER, Thomas, Canadian architect, born in Bath, England, 8 March, 1822. He was educated in his native place, and, after leaving school, was articled to an architect there, subsequently studying his profession in London. At an early age he was intrusted with the erection of a cathedral at Antigua, West Indies. In 1857 he went to Toronto. Canada, and formed a partnership with Chilion Jones. In 1859 their designs were accepted by the government for the parliament and departmental buildings and governor-general's residence at Ottawa. (See illustration of the capitol.) In the competition for the new capitol for the state of New York, at Albany, his design was one of the three to which equal premiums were awarded. In the second competition, to which the three successful competitors were invited, Augustus Laver, one of the three, prepared a joint design with Mr. Fuller which was ultimately adopted in 1867. Mr. Fuller remained in New York state until 1881, when he returned to Ottawa, and on 9 December of that year he was appointed chief architect of the Dominion of Canada.
