Basic Biographical Details

Name: James Miller
Designation: Architect
Born: 1879
Died: After 1912
Bio Notes: James Miller was born in 1879, the son of architect Andrew Lindsay Miller of Cambuslang and Glasgow and his wife Agnes Murdoch Turnbull. He studied at Glasgow School of Art 1894-1901; he was articled to his father from 1895 to 1900, remaining as assistant until 1903 when he became a partner. His father died later that year, leaving him to continue the practice on his own account, although he retained the existing name of A Lindsay Miller & Son. He was later assisted by his younger brother, Andrew Lindsay Miller Junior. The office immediately prior to the First World War was at 19 Blythswood Square, which must have caused some confusion with the more famous James Miller's at 15 Blythswood Square. He was admitted LRIBA on 24 June 1912, his proposers being Alexander McGibbon, Andrew Balfour and George Bell II. At that date his home address was The Bisque, Cambuslang.
