The first partner in the firm was Mackay Malcolm who, along with his family arrived in Juneau in 1945. One of Mackay's most notable projects was the design of the Juneau Public Library (now the Juneau Douglas City Museum), which was funded in large part by fundraising efforts of the Juneau Rotary Club and constructed at a cost of $124,000 by the local firm of Triplette & Dalziel.
