Dates of existence


William Carlyle was born in New Galloway, Kirkcudbright on the 13th of April 1896. He was the middle son of Joseph, a Jeweller and Watchmaker born in 1848 and Agnes (nee Lockerbie). He first enrolled at The Glasgow School of Art as an evening student studying Design in 1915 with a registration number of 231. The student registers record his occupation as "silver engraver" and his Glasgow address as c/o Stirling, 82 Alexandra Parade. A second address, High Street, New Galloway, was the family home and possibly also the business address of his father. He enrolled again for the next two years. In 1916-1917 he studied an evening class in Drawing and Painting with a registration number of 18. In 1917-1918 he studied Life Drawing with a registration number of 315. For both years, he continued to give Alexandra Parade as his Glasgow address. After a year's break, he returned in 1919-1920 to study Drawing and Painting again, but had moved to c/o Miss Fisher, 58 Buccleuch Street. He married Grace Young Louden on the 17th of January 1935 in Glasgow and died in Perth on the 3rd of September 1952.
