Basic Biographical Details

Name: William Nicol
Designation: Architect
Bio Notes: William Nicol was taken into partnership by James Balderston Whyte and William Gordon Galloway c.1937, the practice title becoming Whyte, Galloway & Nicol. He appears in the RIBA Kalendar of 1930-31 at their address of 121 Bath Street, Glasgow so he was presumably an assistant by that date. Galloway withdrew shortly after Nicol was taken into partnership, the practice title then changing to Whyte & Nicol.

Whyte died of pleurisy and cardiac failure on 31 December 1945. Presumably, William Nichol then continued the practice alone.
