This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Chicago, Illinois on Oct. 27, 1902.  The Dinwiddie family settled in the San Francisco Bay area when John was a small boy.  John's father, Wm S. Dinwiddie, established Dinwiddie Construction which built the Russ Bldg, Golden Gate Theater, Memorial Opera House, and others.  Following graduation from University High School in Oakland, John Dinwiddie received a B.A. degree from UC Berkeley, and did undergraduate work under architect Eliel Saarinen in Michigan.  The elder Saarinen held him in high regard, and Dinwiddie in turn remembered him as his principal mentor. 

 By 1932 he had returned to Berkeley. The following year he opened an office and designed many fine homes in the San Francisco Bay area, one of which won a prize in 1935.   By then he had studied art at the CCAC and become a competent etcher. 

The latter part of his life was spent in Louisiana where he was dean of the school of architecture at Tulane University from 1953 until 1959.  He died there on Sept. 11, 1959.

Member: SF Architectural Club; Calif. Society of Etchers.

Exh: Salon des Artistes Français, 1928.
