Searching for any information or contacts for William POWRIE.
William was born in Scotland, emigrated to Australia & then to New Zealand where he studied Architecture & received his degree.
He later returned to Australia & married at Newcastle in 1909 to Annie Mabel RYAN.
The couple settled in Albury, NSW where a daughter Joan Mabel was born c1910-12.
William died at Albury in 1936. His parents are listed as Robert & Elizabeth.
William was the first resident master in charge of Albury Campus of Riverina Institute of TAFE (1899-1925). He also opened a trades school in Albury.
I have also seen a notation online that says William was born in NZ, this does not coincide with oral family history but may still be a possibility.
Any & all suggestions welcomed.
