Born in 1946, Martin J. Segger is Director of the Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery in Victoria and a professor of art history at University of Victoria. He wrote Victoria: A History In Architecture 1843-1929 and Victoria: A Primer for History in Architecture (1979). The buildings and times of self-taught, born-in-B.C. architect Samuel Maclure (1860-1929) are the subject of his In Search of Appropriate Form (Sono Nis, 1986). Maclure, whose company handled more than 350 commissions throughout B.C. between 1889 and 1929, is also the focus for The Buildings of Samuel Maclure; Exploring Victoria's Architecture (Sono Nis, 1996) with photos by Douglas Franklin. Segger edited The British Columbia Parliament Buildings (North Vancouver: Associated Research Consultants ARCON, 1979), printed by Mitchell Press with a foreword by Premier Bill Bennett, and co-authored The Development of the Gordon Head Campus (University of Victoria, 1998) with Peter I. Smith to mark its 25th anniversary.
