Basic Biographical Details

Name: Andrew David Haxton
Designation: Architect
Born: 10 April 1878
Died: 18 January 1961
Bio Notes: Andrew David Haxton was born in Glasgow on 10 April 1878, the son of Andrew Haxton, grocer, St Andrews, and his wife, Jessie Thomson. He was educated at Madras College and in November 1893 he was articled to Gillespie & Scott in St Andrews, remaining with them for one-and-a-half years as an assistant after completing his apprenticeship. During that time he took art classes with the painter and teacher Robert Smeaton Douglas, then based at Madras College in St Andrews, and registered under the South Kensington Science and Art code, securing most of the advance certificates. He also and won prizes for measured drawing from the Dundee Institute of Architects. He moved to Harrogate as assistant to Thomas Edward Marshall in 1900, and later in the same year moved to Glasgow as assistant to Thomson & Sandilands, studying at the Royal Technical College. In the following year he returned to Gillespie & Scott's office in St Andrews as chief assistant, and he remained there until he commenced practice on his own account in 1907, in partnership with a younger friend and colleague in Gillespie & Scott's office, William Walker (born 1881).

The partnership of Haxton & Walker was based in Leven at 3 High Street, Walker having won the competition for a commercial block there. Both partners were admitted LRIBA on 24 June 1912, proposed by William Fleming Wilkie and the Dundee Institute of Architects.

Walker enlisted at the beginning of the First World War and having initially been stationed at Cupar and at Lundin Links, he was subsequently posted to India, from where he was invalided home, having reached the rank of Captain: he was usually known thereafter as Captain Walker. He was not well enough to resume the Leven partnership, but he married Jenny Reid McCririck of St Andrews and continued to practise from their home at 81 North Street, St Andrews whilst being cared for by her. He was elected FRIBA in January 1921, his proposers being William Williamson, William Fleming Wilkie and John Wilson. His nomination papers state that he was architect to the Commissioners of the Burghs of Pittenweem and Crail and the District of Cupar, and that he acted as expert advisor to Fife County Council on the erection of a sanatorium, although it is unclear to which sanatorium this applies. He died at home in February 1923, his practice being wound up by Thoms & Wilkie who sent Frank Pride to St Andrews to take charge of it.

Haxton thereafter continued to practise alone. In 1919 he was a successful competitor in the local Government Board competition for working class housing designs. This resulted in his being commissioned jointly with Alexander Dewar to design Leven's Scoonie housing estate, the success of which brought a further seven similar commissions within the next two years. Apart from council housing, his practice consisted mainly of co-operative society premises, industrial housing and cinemas, in which his firm had specialised from 1914 onwards, most of them accomplished Art Deco. He was President of the Dundee Institute of Architects in 1936-38 and again in 1943, and was elected FRIBA on 18 April 1944, his proposers being Charles Geddes Soutar, Patrick Hill Thoms and John Donald Mills.

Haxton took Adam Elliot Watson (born 1908) into partnership c.1945. Watson was a product of Glasgow School of Architecture and Wright & Wylie's office, and had spent the war in London on factory work.

Haxton retired in 1950 to the large semi-detached house he had designed with Frank Pride: The Pines, 13 (now 28) Buchanan Gardens in St Andrews. At least in later years he did not travel abroad, holidays being regularly taken at Pine Trees Hotel, Pitlochry. In person he was just below average height, very slim and neat with specially tailored clothes which he had probably designed himself, the trousers invariably being plus-twos, probably because he found conventional trousers unsuitable for site work. He was a vegetarian and his manner was very precise, with only a rare hint of wry humour. The virtues of Esperanto as an international language were extolled in a very measured way and he had radical political views, particularly in respect of the ownership of land - a subject on which he could become surprisingly heated, probably as a result of difficulty in obtaining sites for clients.

Haxton died on 18 January 1961 at Cameron Hospital, Windygates, survived by his wife, Helen Todd Neilson.
