Bio Notes: Alexander Peters Borrie was born on 7 May 1907, the son of Alexander Paters Borrie, joiner, and his wife Elizabeth Dewar Munro. He was a member of the Edinburgh Architectural Association in 1939-40. At that date he was working for the Department of Argriculture for Scotland, 6 Great King Street, Dumfries. He studied (perhaps as a mature student?) for the diploma in architecture at Aberedeen School of Architecture and was elected ARIBA in 1970. Around that time he worked for Baxter Clark & Paul in their Inverness office - or was this his son?

By the time of his death on 3 March 1996 at his home he had moved to Inverness and was a retired FRIAS, affiliated to the local Chapter. He was survived by his wife, Vera Edwards Holdcroft, a retired secretary, and at least one son.
