Basic Biographical Details
|Name: ||Rhoderic Cameron & Son |
|Designation: ||Architectural practice |
|Started: ||1923 |
|Ended: ||1928(?) |
|Bio Notes: ||Rhoderic Cameron (who signed his name thus but is also referred to in other sources as Roderic or Roderick) was born in 1860. He trained with Alexander Ross in Inverness after which he was draughtsman and 'confidential assistant' to Rowand Anderson, leaving after eight years to go into independent practice in Edinburgh. He moved to Aberfeldy for health reasons in the 1890s, later entering into partnership with William Bell, architect and civil engineer. His works included churches, rectories, residences, country houses and estate buildings, farm buildings, schools, commercial premises and waterworks, and are mostly in Perthshire. By 1910 Bell & Cameron were operating in Pitlochry as well as Aberfeldy. |
In 1917 Cameron took on his son, Duncan Chisholm Cameron (born 1901), as an apprentice. In 1923 father and son went into partnership, although it is unclear whether the firm's name changed to reflect this.
Rhoderic Cameron was a member of the Society of Architects and gained automatic admittance as LRIBA in May 1926 without the need for proposers. He then quickly applied to become FRIBA and was admitted on 29 November of the same year, proposed by John Campbell Turner Murray, James Andrew Minty and the RIBA Council. He died on 7 June 1928 and left a widow and a daughter as well as his son, who moved to Edinburgh and continued to practise on his own account.
