Basic Biographical Details

Name: Graham Scott Baird
Designation: Architect
Born: 2 August 1904
Died: Early 1967
Bio Notes: Graham Scott Baird was born in Airdrie on 2 August 1904, the son of Robert Baird, general merchant and his wife Mary Scott whom he had married on 11 March 1903. The younger Baird worked with John Scotland of Airdrie from 1920 to 1922, presumably as an apprentice. His whereabouts over the next few years are not known, but in 1929 he was appointed architect to Chesham Brewery, Chesham, Buckinghamshire, in an office at 131 High Street, Berkhamstead, Hertfordshire. He remained there until 1942 when he set up in independent practice in Budleigh Salterton in Devon.

He was elected FRIBA in 1946, apparently without proposers, and no evidence of him having previously been an Associate or Licentiate has been found. At that time his practice mainly involved working for the War Department, except for small additions to properties. He was the Land Agent, Southern Command.

He died in early 1967. His death was registered between January and March in Poole, Dorset.
