Basic Biographical Details

Born: 1879
Bio Notes: Andrew Edwin Martin was born in 1879 and articled to John James Burnet of Burnet Son & Campbell, Glasgow in 1893, attending the classes at Glasgow School of Art and the Glasgow & West of School Technical College. He spent the summer of 1897 travelling in France and Belgium, and when Burnet's partnership with John Archibald Campbell was dissolved in that year, Martin went with Campbell with whom he remained until 1901 when he obtained a post with Hutchison & Wood in Montreal. In 1904 he moved to Brown & Vallance in the same city, and it was from there that he won the Owen Jones Studentship in 1908, although his nomination paper does not specify his travels. He was admitted LRIBA on 24 June 1912, his proposers being Andrew Sharp, Thomas McLaren and George Allen Ross (later of Ross & MacDonald), all of Montreal.
