Basic Biographical Details

Name: Stewart Tod & Sons
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: c. 1964
Ended: 1970
Bio Notes: Stewart Tod & Sons was a continuation of the merged practices of Alexander Stewart Tod and Archibald Welsh. When Alexander Stewart Tod died on 9 January 1964, he was succeeded as master of works of the Wemyss estate by his son Charles Robert, a surveyor, who had been articled to Archibald Welsh in 1946. Welsh only briefly survived Alexander Stewart Tod, the Welsh & Tod practice then becoming Stewart Tod & Sons, although Stewart Tod Junior remained an associate in David Carr's practice which he had joined in 1955. The architectural side of the Tod practice in Kirkcaldy was also looked after by his wife Vivienne until 1970 when Carr took Stewart Tod into full partnership and the practices merged. This may be the casr bu in the RIBA directory of 1975, Stewart Tod is listed as practising as sole partner in Stewart Tod & Sons with an address of Townsend Place, Kirkcaldy. It may be that this office continued to work on jobs in Fife which had been begun before the merger with David Carr.
