Robert Strachan Lamb was born in Beith, Ayr, on the 7th of September 1892, one of seven children of Margaret Lamb (née Love) and Alexander Lamb, a cabinetmaker. Lamb attended The Glasgow School of Art from 1922 to 1923 as a part time student of architecture. During the First World War, Lamb served as a Captain in The Royal Scots Fusiliers, though on the GSA Roll of Honour, he is only recorded as a 2nd Lieutenant. Lamb worked as a grocer's assistant. In 1920, he married Helena Grainger in Glasgow, a widow previously married to Joseph Clark Gibson, who had died serving in the war. They had two children. Lamb died in Glasgow in 1950, aged 58. Lamb is commemorated on The Glasgow School of Art's First World War Roll of Honour.
