Basic Biographical Details

Name: Henry Cox McCulloch
Born: 10 December 1866
Bio Notes: Henry Cox McCulloch was born in St Andrews on 10 December 1866 and apprenticed to James Gillespie in St Andrews in February 1883. He remained as an assistant after completing his apprenticeship and in January 1889 moved to the office of J & F Salmond in Dundee. He left to work briefly for James Maclaren & Sons; his LRIBA papers are contradictory about the dates of his assistantship there, stating that he began in November 1890 and left in July the same year, and it may be either that he entered the office in November 1889 or that the dates should simply be reversed. He subsequently worked for David Henry of St Andrews before returning to the Salmonds in March 1891. In July the following year he moved to Manchester to work for the engineer architect Henry Lord where he remained until he commenced independent practice at 9 Corporation Street in the same city in March 1904. He was admitted LRIBA on 20 March 1911, his proposers being Lord, John Robert Earnshaw and Paul Ogden, all of Manchester. At that date his home address was Brae Side, Styal Road, Gatley, and his business address 8 Wellington Chambers, 2 Victoria Street, Manchester. He was still at the latter address in 1914; nothing is known of his life after that date.
