Basic Biographical Details

Name: (Professor) James Paul
Designation: Architect
Born: 7 October 1927
Died: 9 July 2009
Bio Notes: James Paul (or ‘Big Jim’ as he was known to many) was born in Toronto on 7 October 1929 where his Scottish parents, James Paul, police constable, and his wife Alice Sheila Miller or Watt, had moved shortly before. They had been living in Chicago where their son was due to be born but their plans changed when Al Capone’s gang pulled up and machine gunned a restaurant near where his mother happened to be. The family immediately moved to Toronto where they opened a restaurant.

The family returned to Scotland in 1930 and ran a restaurant in Portobello, Edinburgh. His father died in 1930 and his mother returned to her native village of Portsoy. Though the family was hard up, James had a happy childhood. His mother remarried in 1941 and they moved to the nearby village of Gamrie. A strict religious code of conduct was followed there which James broke one Sunday by playing in the sea. This was followed by a gradual relaxing of the Sunday codes and James became something of a local hero among the other children there.

James was educated at Banff Academy where he particularly enjoyed sport. From 1947 to 1953 he studied for the diploma in architecture at the School of Architecture in Aberdeen. Again he was involved with sport and to raise funds for the football and basketball teams, he organised and ran dances on the college campus which became very popular. In 1952, he won Aberdeen Corporation's medal for civic architecture (the competition's subject was 'flats, shops and warehouses in built-up areas').

After leaving the college he moved to Glasgow where he studied town planning at the Royal Technical College, qualifying in 1954. He was elected ARIBA and ARIAS that same year, 1954. He then applied and was interviewed for a post with the Corporation of the City of London as an architect/planner. His strong Scottish accent baffled the interview committee but as they liked his confident manner, he was appointed. His work there involved efforts to rebuild the war damaged city. He worked as planner on the Holford City Barbican project. From June 1955 to January 1956 he worked in the practice of Max Lock & Partners. but returned to the Corporation of London at the latter date to continue work on the Barbican project and work in the Tower Hill area.

James Paul returned to Scotland in May 1956 to a post in the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee where he worked hard to build up the Department of Architecture. He succeeded in doing this to the extent that a new building was required for extra studio accommodation for the department. Paul was appointed to design the new building on a tight space on sloping ground at one side of the College. The building which opened in 1974 was named the Matthew Building and at the time was considered to be a fine example of brutalist concrete architecture.

Paul was promoted to the position of senior lecturer in 1959 (or 1960 according to his Fellowship Nomination Paper) and Head of the School of Architecture in 1965, one of the youngest people in the country to hold such a position. He was appointed Professor of Architecture in 1983. He held the position of Head of School until his retirement in 1994. At the same time he was in private practice, first with James Parr & Partners in Dundee from 1957-9, then with Johnston & Baxter until 1962 when that firm became Baxter Clark & Paul. He was promoted to partner in March 1960. In his Fellowship Nomination Paper Paul highlights a number of projects for which he had particular responsibility: the School of Architecture and Environmental Studies; numerous housing projects in Peterhead for which he acted within the practice as town planning and landscape consultant; Backwater Dam where he was responsible for buildings and landscape conservation; the rebuilding and rejuvenation of fishing villages of Burnhaven; various commercail projects (hotels, shops etc; and private housing. He remained with Baxter Clark & Paul until 1979 when he set up practice on his own account as James Paul Associates. The practice was based in Broughty Ferry.

His height and large beard earned him the sobriquet ‘Big Jim’. He was seldom seen without a pipe in his mouth. During the 1960s and 1970s the family home was the scene of many parties. Paul was the life and soul of these parties and entertained his guests with his renditions of songs from the North East. He always made time for his family who spent many holidays in his cottage in Portsoy. He much enjoyed the company of his grandchildren and great grandchildren. As a person he was very approachable and was popular with his students.

Paul died after a long illness in Ninewells Hospital on 9 July 2009. He was survived by his wife, Elizabeth Cruickshank Fiddes, three of his four sons, nine grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
