Designation: Architect
Born: c. 1878
Died: 1910(?)
Bio Notes: David Morton Kinross was born c.1878, the son of John Kinross's elder half-brother James Kinross. He was probably articled to his uncle John Kinross (as it was the address he gave as Associate of the EAA for the RIBA Kalendar of 1908-09), in whose office he worked with Bailey Scott Murphy. In 1905 they formed a partnership with the title of Murphy & Kinross, their office being at 28 North Bridge. David Morton Kinross died in 1910 and the practice which must have been in the sole charge of Murphy moved to 44 Hanover Street in 1911.
