* Alexander was in the Merchant Navy and returned home once injured in a ship wreck. He returned home to help the family run hospitality business and married Euphemia Thomson; a prior student of the Glasgow School of Art.

In 1937, Alex Ritchie’s work was included in a prestigious Scottish Industries Exhibition on London.
