The early years of the Corporation were guided by the Rule family under Albert E. Rule, President and Owner. Many varied projects were completed in Toronto during the Depression years, the highest profile of which was Humbercrest Public School. Following the Second World War, Albert Rule was succeeded by his sons, Russell and Albert Jr., together with John N. Gillies, their engineering classmate from the University of Toronto.
