Bio Notes: George Morrison Hay (born 1875) went into partnership with Robert Robb Gall in 1921, in an office at 177 Union Street, Aberdeen. Gall and Hay had been fellow assistants in the office of Alfred Walter Saxon Snell in London around 1900, and Gall had subsequently returned to Aberdeen where he had commenced practice on his own account in 1918, whilst Hay had enjoyed an international career involving periods in Johannesburg, Hong Kong and Canada before returning home.
