ARIBA 1929; TPIA 1934

Was born in Scotland. He was articled to T Scott Sutherland of Aberdeen from 1922 to 1925. During that period he studied part-time at the Aberdeen School of Architecture, continuing his studies full-time for three years after completing his apprenticeship. He received his diploma and passed the final exam in 1928, enabling him to be admitted ARIBA early the following year, his proposers being James Brown Nicol, Robert Gordon Wilson Junior and John Alexander Ogg Allan. By the time of his application for Associateship in October 1928 he was in South Africa, where he was employed by JC COOK in Johannesburg, and by 1934 was working in the office of EMLEY & WILLIAMSON, Johannesburg. At some point (n.d.) he entered into partnership with TN DUNCAN, the partnership being dissolved in 1948 (cf DUNCAN & WHYTE). In 1969 he was in partnership with PJL POWELL, PSA HAHN and C BRISTOL (cf POWELL, WHYTE, HAHN & BRISTOL) which had offices in Eastern Transvaal and in Parktown, Johannesburg. By 1970 he also had a PO Box address in Bloemfontein. It is possible he retired to White River as his address in 1979 is a PO Box there.

There is also a listing of this practitioner on the Dictionary of Scottish Architects.
