Biographical or historical data
The architectural firm of Baskervill & Son was formed in 1932 when Henry E. Baskervill's long-established Richmond architectural practice was joined by his son, H. Coleman Baskerville. (The younger man used an added letter on the family name.) Important commissions by Baskervill & Son before the death of the elder Baskervill in 1946 included the renovation to the Medical College of Virginia's Egyptian Building (1932), the M. C. V. Main Hospital (1936-1941), the Virginia State Library (1939-1940), and the W. T. Grant Department Store (Richmond; 1941). After a long career leading Baskervill & Son, H. Coleman Baskerville died in 1969.
