Biographical history

Thomas Mitchell was born on 13 May 1906 and was articled to Mills & Shepherd of Dundee in July 1922, attending classes at the Dundee Technical College. He completed his apprenticeship in August 1926 and the following month was admitted to the degree course at Glasgow School of Architecture at third-year level, studying under Thomas Harold Hughes. During the summer holiday in 1927 he worked in the office of Wylie, Wright & Wylie as an assistant, and at some point that year he spent a fortnight in Paris. He made a further two-week study tour in 1928, this time to Normandy, and travelled around Scotland and England at various times before passing the qualifying exam in April 1929 'with great distinction', according to Hughes. Later that year he set out on a five-month tour of Europe including France, Italy, Austria and Germany, and he was admitted ARIBA at the end of the year, his proposers being Hughes, David Bateman Hutton and Thomas Lumsden Taylor. At that time he was living at 6 Dalhousie Road, Barnhill, Broughty Ferry. Besides his architectural qualifications Mitchell was a structural engineer. He set business on his own account before 1950 in London at 20 Bedford Square. He had been awarded the MBE by then. The practice name was Thomas Mitchell & Partners. Mitchell died in 1996 in Surrey, his death being registered in June of that year.
