Biography from McTear's:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Thomas Callander Campbell Mackie was born at Helensburgh on June 17, 1886 and educated at Larchfield School, Helensburgh.  He was apprenticed to Alexander Nisbet Paterson c. 1902 to 1907 and was at some point an assistant to William Leiper, studying at the Glasgow School of Architecture under Eugène Bourdon from c.1904 and contributing an article to Vista in 1908.  At the School he was regarded as most promising of architect students, gifted with outstanding imagination of unusual quality and supreme draughtsmanship.

In the years before the First World War, he designed ship interiors for Alexander Stephen of Linthouse, and made a visit to Venice.  Mackie was unfit for military service and spent the First World War with the Red Cross.  At the end of it he designed memorials for Martyns of Cheltenham, but in 1920 he was appointed Head of the School of Design at Glasgow School of Art.

Throughout the inter-war years he traveled extensively in France, practicing chiefly as a painter in oil and pastel and as a lithographer and etcher rather than an architect.  In the early 1930s he moved house from Helensburgh to Moorcroft, Milngavie, where he died on August 17, 1952, two years after his retirement from Glasgow School of Art.

His friend Alfred G Lochhead organized a memorial exhibition of his work.  Lochhead wrote of him he was a man apart, in having an inward something, call it an intensely Celtic flame or what you will, which gave him an awareness of beauty which was exceptionally keen.
