    Public

    Smith, Tracey, Lyon and Brock were a firm of architects. Des Smith and Don Tracey formed a partnership in 1949 and they were soon joined by Eric Lyon and Les Brock. They reverted back to Smith & Tracey around 1960 when Lyon and Brock left. The firm specialised in work in work for the Catholic Church and designed a Church, Convent and houses at the St Mary's settlement at North Tynong - this settlement is now called Maryknoll. The first item in this list is the entry on Smith & Tracey from the website 'Built Heritage - Dictionary of Unsung Architects' - which includes a history of the firm and a list of their works.
