Gray Young, Morton & Calder

Also known as:

  • Gray Young, Morton, Young, Calder & Fowler

The partnership of William Gray Young (1885-1962), John Barclay Young (1887 – 1967) and Hubert Conrad Morton (c.1896 – 1965), known as Gray Young, Morton and Young had a long successful practice beginning in the 1920s. In 1951 Ian Calder (1930-1992) joined the practice followed, in 1959, by the future mayor of Wellington Michael Fowler (1953-2009). When Gray Young died in 1962 the practice name 'Gray Young, Morton, Young, Calder and Fowler' continued to be used.

The practice commissioned E. Mervyn Taylor to produced murals for the National Mutual Life Insurance Building (1963) and Masterton Post Office Building (1962).
