Stephen Baillie Adam (1872-1960) studied at the Glasgow School of Art before joining his father’s firm, which became Stephen Adam & Son. However, the two men quarrelled, which lead to a permanent separation and a breaking of the partnership in 1904. Afterwards he established his own studio, which included a period working with Robert Paterson, a skilled cabinet maker, before eventually moving to America.

The image opposite comes from the church of St James the Less, Bishopbriggs, E Dunbartonshire where the work of Stephen Adam Jun. was highlighted by Iain Galbraith.
