Basic Biographical Details

Name: William James Walker Todd
Designation: Architect
Born: 6 February 1884
Died: 29 April 1944
Bio Notes: William James Walker Todd was born in Glasgow on 6 February 1884, the son of Ruthven Campbell Todd CA. He was educated at Fettes College and articled to Thomas Purves Marwick in January 1902. He travelled in Italy as early as 1903 and attended the Edinburgh School of Applied Art, which merged with Edinburgh College of Art while he was a student in 1902-07. While there he won the Diploma of Merit for his National Art Survey Work and the Royal Institution Travelling Studentship in 1907, these gaining him a place in Peddie's office on his return from a further spell of continental travel. He commenced practice on his own account at 44 Hanover Street in 1909, and was later joined by Sydney Houghton Miller (born May 1884), who had won the Pugin Studentship in that year. The two entered a formal partnership at 19 Young Street in 1914: designs made together before that date appear to have been in collaboration rather than in partnership, and earlier in that year Todd had briefly worked in association with Bailey Scott Murphy prior to the latter's death, although it is unclear whether a formal partnership had existed. What should have been the Todd & Miller partnership's major work, St David's Church at Dundee, was never realised despite a reduction in the design. The practice closed in 1915 when the partners were called up: Walker Todd served in France with the Royal Scots, reaching the rank of Captain.

In January 1920 John More Dick Peddie (born 1853) merged his practice with theirs as J M Dick Peddie & W J Walker Todd. Peddie retired in November of that year and appears to have taken most of the practice's library with him: his copy of Garner and Stratton's 'Domestic Architecture of England during the Tudor Period', now in the possession of Mrs Scott Duncan, has an inscription recording its gift to Walker Todd at that time.

Miller left the partnership in 1927 and opened his own office at 15 York Place. The reasons for his leaving are not known but the continued omission of his name from the practice title may have rankled. His place was taken by another former assistant, David John Chisholm, David John Chisholm, also born in 1884 and a contemporary of Miller's at George Watson's College, who had been articled to Peddie & Washington Browne for the unusually long period of 1901-08 and had subsequently sought experience elsewhere before rejoining the firm shortly after the end of the First World War. He was an exceptionally fine draughtsman with a profound knowledge of Gothic and Classic detail.

When Chisholm was taken into partnership he was the only member of the practice to be a member of the RIBA, but in March 1931 Walker Todd, at that time a member of the Council of the Edinburgh Architectural Association, was elected ARSA concurrently with his belated application for admission as LRIBA; his proposers were his old colleagues at Peddie & Washington Browne's, John Wilson and Robert Stirling Reid. His election as ARSA almost immediately brought about his admission as Fellow on the recommendation of the Council in November. Wilson (by then Chief Architect at the Department of Health for Scotland) reported to the Council that 'he is in my opinion one of the ablest architects we have in Scotland and his work proves that beyond doubt'. Wilson probably had Walker Todd's local authority housing in mind which was among the very best of its period.

In 1936 the partnership of Jamieson & Arnott was dissolved as a consequence of the enforced retirement of Ernest Arthur Oliphant Auldjo Jamieson through ill health. That partnership was then less busy than it had been and for reasons not entirely clear James Alexander Arnott left to practise alone. Jamieson's son, George Lindsay Auldjo Jamieson (born 1905), then sought a merger with Dick Peddie & Walker Todd. He brought to Dick Peddie & Walker Todd the Sydney Mitchell & Wilson archive, much of the Jamieson & Arnott archive and those clients who were his father's rather than Arnott's. The practice title then became Dick Peddie, Todd & Jamieson, letterheads of that time bearing the subhead 'incorporating Sydney Mitchell & Wilson' to leave no doubt that the Jamiesons had had the dominant financial interest in the Jamieson & Arnott partnership.

The practice conditions during the Second World War resulted in the merger of the Dick Peddie Todd & Jamieson and the Richardson & McKay practices in 1942, John Ross McKay having secured a lot of war work, perhaps more than he could find staff for. He quickly became the leading partner, particularly so after the death of Walker Todd on 29 April 1944, after which the firm continued as Dick Peddie McKay & Jamieson. Todd was survived by his wife Christian Craik Todd (maiden name as well as married name) of Whitethorn House, Milnathort, five daughters, and five sons, of whom the writer Ruthven Campbell Todd, who settled in the USA, was one. Although he had lived in considerable style at 34 Inverleith Terrace, William James Walker Todd left the surprisingly small moveable estate of 566 10s 0d.
