Basic Biographical Details

Name: D S Waugh & Associates
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: Before 1957
Ended: Before 1970(?)
Bio Notes: David Stark Reid Waugh was born on 10 January 1906 and was articled to John Burnet, Son & Dick on 1 September 1924, studying at the Glasgow School of Architecture. He travelled in Normandy from 19 August to 10 September 1928 and received his diploma on 10 June the following year, entitling him to an exemption from the RIBA final examinations. He passed the professional practice exam on 9 July 1929 in Edinburgh, and was admitted ARIBA at the end of that year, his proposers being Norman Aitken Dick, James Miller and John Watson. At that time he was still working for the Burnet, Son & Dick firm, where he had remained as a draughtsman after completing his apprenticeship.

He later taught at the Glasgow School of Architecture, and in 1938 entered into partnership with Thomas Harold Hughes, who also taught there. Ill health forced Hughes to retire from the partnership in 1942 but the Hughes & Waugh name appears to have remained in use until at least the time of Hughes's death in 1949. By 1957 Waugh was working as D S Waugh & Associates.

Waugh resigned his RIBA membership at the end of 1970.
