family business of aerated water manufacturers, James Dunbar Ltd.
Fellow of Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1943.
Joined Merchant Company of Edinburgh in 1942, became Assistant 1959."
"At an early stage took photographs and the
publishing of a whole page of these in the school magazine certainly did
much to encourage the proud possessor of a 'magnificent' 1/4 plate
Sanderson teak and brass tropical model."
"At University had not much time to take
photographs and at this stage played some tennis but never gave up golf
learned at St Andrews at a very early age. Devoted a considerable
time to painting and drawing."
"Joined EPS in 1945 and has been almost
continuously on the Council in some capacity since. President
