|Bio Notes: ||Thomas Wickham Milligan was born about 1891 in Hawick, the son of Robert Milligan, cycle agent and engineer and his wife Jemima. He was articled to James Pearson Alison of Hawick in 1905. He remained in his office until 1914 when he moved to Leeds to work as assistant to John Sydney Brocklesby, and subsequently moved again to Middlesbrough to work for George T Wellburn. He enlisted for active service in December 1915, and on his demobilisation in February 1919 returned to Alison's office as assistant. The following year he emigrated to South Africa, finding an appointment in the office of W G Moffat in Durban, and in 1921 joined Hawke & McKinley and C P Walgate of Cape Town as chief assistant. He passed the qualifying exam in June 1922 and was admitted ARIBA on 3 December 1923, his proposers being William Hawke, Franklin Kaye Kendall and Albert John Thompson. At that time he was still in the employment of Hawke & McKinley and C P Walgate. |
He seems to have died in 1923 as a result of an injury received during the First World War.
