Basic Biographical Details

Name: Andrew Lindsay Miller
Designation: Architect, Valuer
Born: 1847
Died: 6 June 1903
Bio Notes: Andrew Lindsay Miller was born in 1847, the son of James Miller, provision merchant and his wife Mary Lindsay. He was articled to Alexander M Gow about 1862-63 and thereafter to Thomas Halket prior to obtaining a place in the office of John Burnet Senior. From an early age he was a close firend of James Sellars, of which he wrote an affectionate memoir after his death in 1888.

Miller commenced practice in Glasgow c.1873. He lived in Cambuslang where he also kept an office. His clients were mainly in Cambuslang but his specialisation in School Board work brought many commissions in Glasgow and East Dunbartonshire. In Glasgow he was secretary of the architectural section of the Glasgow Philosophical Society, and was responsible for the lecture programme, giving many of the lectures himself. He was an excellent photographer and made his own lantern slides.

Miller married Agnes Murdoch Turnbull. They had four children: James, Andrew Lindsay Junior (both of whom became architects), John and Mary.

Miller died relatively early of pleurisy on 6 June 1903 at his home, Borgie, Cambuslang. The practice was continued by his two older sons.
