Bio Notes: Harry Lind was born on 27 March 1906, the son of Alan Lind, slater and plasterer, and his wife, Janet Stirling. He commenced his architectural training with five years' study at Edinburgh College of Art under John Begg, from 7 January 1923. This was followed by three-and-a-half years' experience in an unspecified office, and six months as assistant clerk of works. He passed the qualifying exam in Edinburgh in June 1932 and was admitted ARIBA on 4 December the following year, his proposers being Begg, Charles Denny Carus-Wilson and William James Walker Todd. His nomination papers give no business address but state that he was living in Station Road, Lochgelly at the time, and that he had spent part of most of his holidays during his student years undertaking measured work.

Lind was elected FRIAS in 1964 and resigned his RIBA membership in December 1970, at which time he had been practising as an architect and surveyor from 9 East Port, Dunfermline.

Lind died at Milesmark Hospital on 18 December 1986, survived by his wife Jane Crombie Rae and at least one son who also lived in Dunfermline.
