Basic Biographical Details

Name: Stewart Tod & Partners
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: 1985
Bio Notes: Stewart Tod & Partners was established in 1985 having developed from the earlier Stewart Tod & Sons practice.

Stewart Tod & Sons was a continuation of the merged practices of Alexander Stewart Tod and Archibald Welsh. When Alexander Stewart Tod died on 9 January 1964, he was succeeded as master of works of the Wemyss estate by his son Charles Robert, a surveyor, who had been articled to Archibald Welsh in 1946. Welsh only briefly survived Alexander Stewart Tod, the Welsh & Tod practice then becoming Stewart Tod & Sons, although Stewart Tod Junior remained an associate in David Carr's practice which he had joined in 1955. The architectural side of the Tod practice in Kirkcaldy was also looked after by his wife Vivienne until 1970 when Carr took Stewart Tod into full partnership and the practices merged. On the retirement of David Carr in 1977 Vivienne became a partner. Subsequently in 1979 Anthony C S Dixon was taken into partnership followed by Roger Taylor. Latterly the practice concentrated on conservation work. In 1985 the name changed to Stewart Tod & Partners.
