Basic Biographical Details

Name: Andrew Martin Dalgleish
Designation: Architect
Born: 18 October 1918
Died: 18 October 1999
Bio Notes: Andrew Martin Dalgleish was born in Kirkwall, Orkney on 18 October 1918, the son of George White Dalgleish, a Church of Scotland minister, and his wife Agnes Robertha Martin. The family moved from Orkney to Edinburgh and then to Culsalmond, Aberdeenshire where his father had charges before moving to Monymusk. He studied at the School of Architecture in Aberdeen and was admitted ARIBA in 1948. His studies were interrupted by service in the army from 1939 to 1946. He was assumed as partner into the practice of A H Mottram & Son in 1960. The name of the practice later became Mottram Patrick & Dalgleish about 1968.

Dalgleish particularly enjoyed working on historic buildings and his favourite was Dalhousie Castle when the practice converted it to a hotel. His interest is older buildings is reflected in his membership of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.

Dalgleish retired about 1978.

He died at the Fairmile Marie Curie Nursing Home on 18 October 1999. At that time he was a retired ARIAS. He was survived by his wife, May Stuart Crichton, a retired school teacher, and two sons and a daughter.
