Basic Biographical Details

Name: Francis George Glyn Robertson & John R Hacking
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: 1910
Ended: 1911
Bio Notes: Francis George Glyn Robertson was born on 7 March 1881 and educated at Routenburn Preparatory School and afterwards at Fettes College, Edinburgh, where he enrolled in 1896. He was articled to James Thomson of Baird & Thomson from 1900 to 1904, and attended Glasgow School of Art and Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College. In September 1902 he travelled through the northern capital cities, visiting Copehagen, Stockholm, St Petersburg, Moscow and Amsterdam. Having served four years with Thomson he continued his apprenticeship for a further two years with John James Burnet (then working as John Burnet & Son) before joining Burnet's former partner John Archibald Campbell as assistant in 1906. Whilst there he took a two-month holiday in May and June 1908 to tour Italy and France, including Rome, Florence, Sienna and Paris. He remained with the same firm after the formation of Campbell's partnership with Alexander David Hislop in 1909 and Campbell's subsequent death in the same year, leaving to commence independent practice at 144 St Vincent Street, Glasgow in 1910 in partnership with John R Hacking (born 1881/82) who was probably also from the Burnet office.

Hacking died only a year later, in 1911; Robertson continued to practise alone thereafter.
