Basic Biographical Details

Name: Charles Robertson Gallie
Designation: Architect
Bio Notes: Charles Robertson Gallie was articled to Alexander Ross & Son in January 1912 and studied at Inverness School of Art. He returned to the same office as chief assistant after completing his war service, and subsequently studied full-time at Aberdeen School of Art for two years, gaining the diploma and post-diploma. He passed the qualifying exam in London in July 1921 and was admitted ARIBA late that year, his proposers being Alexander Ross, Samuel Grant Alexander and John Alexander Ogg Allan. His nomination papers give 5 Ardconnel Terrace West, Inverness as both business and private address, although his declaration of January 1922 was witnessed by John Alistair Ross, suggesting he may still have been working in the Ross firm.
