Dates of existence


Robert Martin Smith was born on 27 December 1895. He studied at The Glasgow School of Art as an evening student of architecture whilst working as an architectural apprentice from 1912 until the 1914-1915 session, when his studies were interrupted by the First World War. During WW1, like many of his fellow architecture students, he served with the Royal Engineers reaching the rank of Sergeant Major by the end of the hostilities. He returned to The Glasgow School of Art for the 1919-20 session, again as an evening student of architecture. Throughout his time at The Glasgow School of Art his address is noted as Ha' Craig, Whitevale Avenue, Stepps. It has not been possible to trace information regarding his family, war service and subsequent career. R.M.Smith is commemorated on The Glasgow School of Art's First World War Roll of Honour.
