|Bio Notes: ||William Gibson Henderson was born on 17 July 1909, the son of Alexander Henderson, farmer and his wife Elizabeth Philip Geils. He was articled to George Watt of 214 Union Street, Aberdeen, from September 1927 until 1930, and attended evening classes at Robert Gordon's College. He passed the qualifying exam in June 1933 and was admitted ARIBA on 3 December 1934, his proposers being R Leslie Rollo, Robert Gordon Wilson and A H L Mackinnon. |
Few jobs by Henderson are as yet known. His practice may have been quite low-key. He drew up plans for laying water and gas pipes in Old Meldrum in 1837 and one church designed by him is known.
Henderson stood for election to Inverurie Town Council in 1945 but was not successful.
He died on 6 November 1949 at his home in Inverurie (he was found dead in the kitchen). He was survived by his wife Barbara Dorothy Davidson whom he had married on 13 July 1939 at Peterhead Episcopal Church.
