Suttie, Andrew (Regent, University of Edinburgh)



Andrew Suttie, nephew to George Suttie, Dean of Guild, was born in Forfar. He graduated from the University of St. Andrews in 1644. He was appointed Keeper of the Library in 1646, jointly with Thomas Spier, grand-nephew of Clement Littil. Spier's death shortly afterwards left Suttie in sole charge of the Library.

In 1647 he was appointed Regent of Philosophy to succeed William Tweedie, who had moved on to become Minister of Slammanan. Suttie died sometime before October 1652, and was succeeded by James Pillans who had been Regent of Humanity.
