Basic Biographical Details

Name: Kenneth Henderson Brown
Designation: Architect
Bio Notes: Kenneth Henderson Brown was articled to Arthur Hay Livingstone Mackinnon in September 1911, studying at the Aberdeen School of Architecture. His apprenticeship was interrupted by war service from September 1914 to June 1919, but he returned to Mackinnon's office thereafter and continued to attend classes at the School of Architecture, where he obtained his diploma in June 1921. He passed the qualifying exam the following month and was admitted ARIBA in early 1922, his proposers being John Alexander Ogg Allan, George Watt and Alexander Marshall Mackenzie. His nomination papers give Aberdeen School of Architecture as his business address, but his declaration accepting admittance in March 1922 was witnessed by the Captain of the Royal Engineers office at Cork barracks, suggesting that he had returned to military service.
