Basic Biographical Details

Name: A Marshall Mackenzie Son & George
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: May 1931
Ended: February 1932
Bio Notes: This practice was a result of consolidation of the Mackenzie architectural practices with a closely related practice. In May 1931 A Marshall Mackenzie & Son merged the Aberdeen practice with that of the cinema and auction mart specialist, Clement George, born 1879 in Macduff, who had been in the office from 1897 to 1907, and had remained a family friend: his senior partner, George Sutherland had died in 1927. The practice now became A Marshall Mackenzie, Son & George.

These arrangements were to prove brief. Clement George died on 23 February 1932, followed on 4 May 1933 by Alexander Marshall Mackenzie who had been at the drawing board until within a week of his death. The practice then reverted to its former title of A Marshall Mackenzie & Son.
