Designation: Architect
Born: 4 September 1898
Died: 29 December 1986
Bio Notes: Lockhart Whiteford Hutson was born on 4 September 1898 and was articled to Cullen, Lochhead & Brown of Hamilton in 1913, studying at Hamilton Technical School. His apprenticeship was interrupted by active war service from 1916 to 1919, serving in the Royal Scots and 5/6th Battalion Scottish Rifles, but he resumed his training with the same firm in the latter year and commenced classes at the Glasgow School of Architecture. He became an Associate of the Glasgow Institute of Architects in 1920, and remained with Cullen, Lochhead & Brown as an assistant after completing his apprenticeship.

In 1925 James Lochhead and William Brown took Hutson into partnership along with Thomas Spiers Fraser, who had been their chief assistant since 1911, although the practice's name did not change to reflect their new roles. Fraser left in 1930 to practise independently but Hutson remained as Lochhead's partner.

Hutson was admitted FRIBA on 16 July 1940, proposed by the RIBA Council. At that time the Hamilton branch of the practice was based at 119 Cadzow Street and Hutson was living at 'Gruinard', 11 Miller Street, Hamilton. In 1941 he was appointed Director of Bricks for Scotland (Ministry of Works) and subsequently Director of Bricks and Director of Building Materials in London. For these services he was awarded an OBE in the New Year’s Honours, 1946. Hutson had become sole partner when Lochhead died in 1942 and remained so until 1946 when he took Stuart C Clink into partnership. In 1948 Hutson was appointed by the East Kilbride Development Corporation to undertake the initial housing development at East Kilbride.

Hutson died on 29m December 1986 at Stonehouse Hospital. At the time of his death he was still actively involved in architecture. He had served the profession on many committees and through other orgainisations such as the Scottish Council on Development & Industry, the National Brick Advisory Council, the Joint Standing Committee & Committe on Building Costs. He was president of the GIA in 1939 and of the RIAS in 1949. His obituarist remarks on his 'enthusiasm and capacity for work' and that he was a 'social man of great compassion and humanity'.
