Basic Biographical Details

Designation: Architect
Bio Notes: It is as yet unclear where Frank Alexander Greig Inglis spent his earlier childhood but from 1907 until 1915 he was in Canada and the United States and from 1916 to 1918 in India and Mesopotamia. He returned to Scotland and from September 1918 to June 1920 studied at Aberdeen School of Architecture. In the latter year he was briefly at the Royal High School of Edinburgh, but whether he was a pupil or teacher is unclear. Later that year he returned to Aberdeen and was with the practice of Marshall Makenzie & Son, as apprentice; he remained there for three years but broke off to return to the School of Architecture. He resumed work with Marshall Mackenzie & Son as an improvert in June 1924. A third spell at the School of Architecture began in September 1925. He sat the qualifying exam and was elected on 29 November 1926, his proposers being Alexander Marshall Mackenzie, George Watt and John Wilson Walker.

By 1930 he was an Associate of the Aberdeen Society of Architects at which time his address was Indby, Seafield Avenue, Keith. No further details are yet known.
