Aitken Adams was born in Fife on the 14th of May 1898, the son of James and Mary Adams.

In the 1915/16 session he took evening classes in drawing and painting whilst working as a clerk. During the war he served with the 14th Battalion London Regiment (London Scottish). His Record of Service paper confirms he signed up on 17th March 1917, although he is not recorded on The Glasgow School of Art Roll of Honour.
