Basic Biographical Details

Name: James Bow Dunn
Born: 16 January 1861
Died: 25 August 1930
Bio Notes: James Bow Dunn was born in Pollokshields, Glasgow, on 16 January 1861, the son of David Dunn and his wife Margaret Robertson Thomson; an earlier son of the same name had been born on 12 December 1859 but had not survived. His family moved to Edinburgh, where he was sent to George Heriot's School. In March 1876 he was articled to James Campbell Walker and attended Heriot-Watt College, followed by travel in France, Belgium and Holland. From Walker's office he found a place in the Burgh Engineers Office c.1885 and conducted a small private practice on his own account from 1887. In that year he competed for Edinburgh Public Library under the pseudonym 'Triumphant Democracy' and came into some prominence when he was placed second to George Washington Browne by the assessor, Alfred Waterhouse. In May of the following year Dunn won the competition for the Library of the Society of Solicitors to the Supreme Courts of Scotland under the pseudonym 'Wisdom, Health and Beauty', the assessor in this case being John James Burnet. This win enabled him to set up business on his own account.

In 1894 Dunn took into partnership James Leslie Findlay, born 30 April 1868 and younger son of John Ritchie Findlay, proprietor of the Scotsman. Findlay was educated at Harrow and apprenticed to his father's architect Arthur George Sydney Mitchell. As he never sought membership of the RIBA precise dates are lacking, but he designed Dean Path Buildings for his father in 1885 at the early age of 17, presumably while still in Mitchell's office. The partnership was probably formed for the purpose of building the Scotsman's new buildings (begun 1898) but had got off to an even earlier start with an important competition win for the Adam Smith Memorial and Beveridge Halls and Library in Kirkcaldy in 1894.

Although the partnership prospered principally from commissions from Findlay's father, by 1901 Dunn was advising Robert Stodart Lorimer against partnerships being the view that 'a small business that you look after yourself with a few fellows is the best'. By that date Dunn was already undertaking commissions in his own name only. The partnership was closed in 1903 although Dunn and Findlay continued to share the office at 42 Frederick Street until 1906.

Dunn was admitted FRIBA on 5 June 1905. His proposers, somewhat surprisingly, were all Glaswegian - John Keppie, Thomas Lennox Watson and David Barclay. From 1911 onwards Dunn began to develop a reputation which extended beyond Scotland, acquiring a significant country house practice in Northumberland. He was elected ARSA in 1918 and RSA in 1930, but died suddenly in Edinburgh on 25 August, a week after an operation originally scheduled for the beginning of that year which had been postponed because of his competition win for George Watson's School. He was survived by his widow and two daughters.

Dunn is said to have been a discriminating art collector and acted as advisor to several friends and clients. John Keppie wrote of him that 'like all strong men he was a good hater [sic] and with his frankness of conviction one always knew where Dunn stood'.

Dunn's son Herbert continued the practice as J B Dunn & Partners, and then as J B Dunn & G L Martin, Martin having been his principal assistant for several years.
