Allan Stevenson was born in Burnhouse, Beith, Ayrshire, on the 2nd of October 1893, one of 4 children (siblings Margaret C, Willliam C, and Janet Lang) of Elizabeth (née Carswell) and David, a bacon curer. Stevenson attended The Glasgow School of Art from 1909 to 1913, as an evening student of drawing and painting, and life drawing, while working as a draper's apprentice. During the First World War he served probably with the Royal Garrison Artillery. After the war, he worked as bacon curer until he died at home in Barrhead, on the 28th November 1924, due to health problems caused by mustard gas poisoning while serving in France during the war. Stevenson is commemorated on The Glasgow School of Art's First World War Roll of Honour.
