|Born: ||c. 1847 |
|Died: || |
|Bio Notes: ||John Malcolm was born c.1847 and apprenticed to William Leslie of Aberdeen c.1862. On Leslie's retirement, or semi-retirement (he still appeared in the 'Architects, Engineers' and Building Trades' Directory' of 1868) c.1865, he had completed only two and a half years of his apprenticeship which was transferred to James Matthews of Matthews & Lawrie, with whom he remained as an assistant for a further year. About 1872 he moved to London to gain experience in the office of George Edmund Street, commencing independent practice in London in 1874. He was admitted ARIBA on 7 November 1881, his proposers being Edward Salmons, Street and James Tilley, a London surveyor. At that date his address was 46 Queen Victoria Street. By 1914 he appears to have been semi-retired, practising only from his home at 10 Bisham Gardens, Highgate: his membership lapsed in 1920, presumably because of death or complete retirement. |
