Basic Biographical Details

Name: Harris & Moodie
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: 1908
Ended: 1911
Bio Notes: Thomas Anderson Moodie was born in 1874 and articled to James Lindsay on 15 September 1889, studying at the Glasgow School of Art under William James Anderson. He remained with Lindsay as a draughtsman until February 1897 when he moved to John Bennie Wilson's office. In June 1899 he moved to London to work in the office of Stevenson & Redfern, passing the qualifying exam in November that year, and he was admitted ARIBA on 5 March 1900, his proposers being John James Stevenson, William Forrest Salmon and Campbell Douglas. Around this time he won the Soane Medallion. His nomination papers state that he had made three week-long summer sketching tours prior to that date - to Lincoln in 1896, to Oxford in 1897 and to Durham and York in 1898.

In 1902 Moodie joined the staff of the LCC Architects Department, where he met Emmanuel Vincent Harris. Both left in 1903, Moodie setting sail for Johannesburg where he commenced practice as chief architect to the South African Railway. He returned to London in 1908 to enter into partnership with Harris at 8 New Square, Lincoln's Inn. In 1909 they won the competition for Glamorgan County Buildings, a project which was completed in 1911, whereupon the partnership was dissolved, Moodie forming a new partnership with Thomas Millwood Wilson, a friend and colleague at Stevenson & Redfern's, and Harold Ian Merriman from Edward Guy Dawber's office (see separate entry).
