Name: John Douglas Dixon Watt
Designation: Architect
Born: c. 1884
Died: 1 July 1916
Bio Notes: John Douglas Dixon Watt was born c.1884 and articled to James Strang in Falkirk from 1900 to 1905, remaining with him as an assistant. During that period he attended Falkirk School of Art and the Glasgow School of Architecture under Eugène Bourdon and Charles Gourlay. He passed the qualifying exam in 1909 and was admitted ARIBA on 29 November of that year, his proposers being John Slater, Edward Guy Dawber and George Hubbard, all of London: unusually it seems unlikely that he knew any of them.
