Herbert Hendrie (1887-1946) was born in Manchester and moved to London to study at the Royal College of Art and the Slade School. His work in London included a period at The Glass House in Fulham. In 1923 he moved to Scotland as Head of the School of Design at Edinburgh College of Art, following Alexander Strachan, brother of Douglas Strachan. He would stay for 20 years working not only as a teacher, but also as a practitioner, with his College studio producing, amongst many other commissions, his famous windows for Liverpool Cathedral.
