Basic Biographical Details

Name: Andrew Muirhead
Designation: Architect
Died: 1907
Bio Notes: Andrew Muirhead does not appear in the British Architectural Library/RIBA 'Directory of British Architects 1834-1914' and little is known of him, except that he practised in Dunfermline and won the competition for the Carnegie Baths there in conjunction with Alfred Greig in 1902. On his death in 1908 his practice was continued by his then chief assistant Thomas Rutherford (born 1882), who had joined him in 1904, and who retained Muirhead's name in the firm title as a mark of respect for his former employer, practising as Muirhead & Rutherford until at least the late 1930s.
