John Knight’s career began with the Cumbernauld Development Corporation. He was senior architect in the Ancient Monument Branch of the DoE/PSA, subsequently Historic Scotland, now HES. He retired in 2002, and was appointed an OBE. His abiding devotion to the New Town of Edinburgh led him to active participation in its conservation from 1970 and to his recording of it at the turn of the 21st century. His drawing skills were honed through observation of the many buildings he worked on over 25 years.
