Basic Biographical Details

Name: ___ Ferguson
Designation: Architect
Bio Notes: _____ Ferguson (known as 'Fergie') was an assistant in John Burnet & Son's Glasgow office before the First World War, during which he served with the Admiralty. Although a 'difficult chap' and separated from his wife, he was an extremely good draughtsman, and returned to the London office after the war. Trusted by Burnet and close to Thomas Tait and Andrew Bryce, he survived Francis Lorne's purge of Burnet's staff in 1930 and remained with the practice as a very senior assistant throughout the following decade: it was remembered of him that he sang almost continually as he worked.
