Basic Biographical Details

Name: Allan Stevenson & Cassels
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: 1 August 1929
Ended: 1945
Bio Notes: In April 1927 Thomas McGill Cassels (born in 1869) merged his practice of Allan Stevenson & Cassels with that of Alexander Mair, a former apprentice of Stevenson's. Mair demerged his clientele in 1929, probably because he had received the major commission for Ayr County Buildings and was now attracting much more business than Cassels, particularly from dairies. Cassels continued the practice alone, reverting its name to Allan Stevenson & Cassels, until 1945 when it was taken over by Duncan McCulloch. He took ____ Wilson into partnership in the following year. It was later taken over by E A Darley, who formed the Darley Hay partnership. The Darley Hay archive was transferred to Ayrshire Archives in 2007 after the Darley Hay firm merged with Carricks to become Carricks Darley Hay.
