Alan Douglas

 

 

 

 

 

Alan Douglas (18 April 1918 - 19 July 1974) was the son of Robert James Douglas, clerk, and his wife, Christina Grace Niven. He served a five-year apprenticeship under Alexander Lorne Campbell while attending part-time classes at the School of Architecture, Edinburgh College of Art from 1935, and undertook two subsequent years of full-time study to gain his diploma in June 1942. He was admitted ARIBA on 13 April 1943, his proposers being Leslie Grahame-Thomson, William Innes Thomson and Frank Charles Mears.

By 1950 he had a salaried post with the Department of Health for Scotland. He is no longer listed in the Directory for 1963-4. He would appear to have given up architecture in the early 1960s and become a dental technician.

Douglas died on 19 July 1974. He was divorced (his wife was Margaret Brown).
