Scottish naval architect who was owner of the huge Clyde shipbuilding company of William Denny and Brothers. He was President of the Institute of Marine Engineers. The company, usually simply referred to as Dennys, had the highest output and tonnage of any of the Clyde shipbuilders, ranking them as one of the world’s largest companies at that time.
In 1912 Denny was appointed onto the investigatory committee set up by the Board of Trade on the Titanic Disaster which obviously sent shock waves through the shipbuilding world of the time. The committee did not reach any final conclusions until 1915. He thereafter represented Britain at the International Conference on the Safety of Life at Sea.
In 1913 he was awarded a baronetcy (Sir Archibald Denny). He died in 1935
