Basic Biographical Details

Name: Robert Gordon Wilson (senior)
Designation: Architect
Born: 1844
Died: 28 July 1931
Bio Notes: Robert Gordon Wilson was born at New Pitsligo in 1844, the son of a local master builder John Wilson and Eliza Gordon. He was articled to Alexander Ellis of Aberdeen in 1859. The Wilsons were a staunchly United Presbyterian family and it may have been church connections that enabled him to secure a place in the office of Alexander Thomson c.1866, at the end of his apprenticeship with Ellis. A modified Thomsonesque treatment thereafter became apparent in the firm's urban work.

In 1869 Wilson was taken into partnership by Ellis, the practice being based at that time at 13 Belmont Street. Ellis had been sharing a house with his brother-in-law Alexander Diack at no 17 Belmont Street, but by 1876 the house had become too small to accommodate both families, and Ellis and Wilson developed 54-71 Springbank Terrace - Ellis took no 66; Wilson, who had married 23 December 1875, no 60; and the Diacks no 70.

In the mid-1880s the practice moved to the newly built Victoria Buildings on Bridge Street. Ellis had to retire in 1896 suffering from insomnia, melancholia and indigestion.

Wilson's son, also Robert Gordon Wilson (born 1877), became a partner in 1906. Also taken into partnership at that time was John Wilson Walker who was presumably a relative, the practice becoming Wilsons and Walker.

The elder Wilson's later years in practice were spent more as a man of business than as an architect. He was elected to the Town Council 1914-24 and after he retired in 1915 he became chairman of the Plans Committee. At various times he was Chairman of the Rubislaw Granite Company and of Kilgour and Walker, and was a director of Richards. On the voluntary side he was Chairman of the Royal Asylum Board and of Aberdeen University Press, a Trustee of Aberdeen Savings Bank and an active member of the Association for Improving the Condition of the Poor. He also held the post of Convener of the Arts & Crafts Committee at Robert Gordon's Technical College. As President of the Aberdeen Society of Architects Wilson was on the Committee or Patronage for the International Congress of Architetcs, Seventh Session, July 1906.

The elder Wilson died at Westholme, Queen's Road on 28 July 1931. He left moveable estate of 43,108 15s 8d
