One of Dundee’s most prominent jute barons, Ogilvy Dalgleish studied at Edinburgh University before starting work at Baxter Brothers’ mills in 1854. Marrying Sir David Baxter’s niece no doubt helped his rise to the top, and he became chairman of the company after Baxter’s death in 1872. A notable philanthropist, he gave generous gifts to Dundee Royal Infirmary, University College and the Technical Institute, and was one of the principal benefactors to Dundee’s Medical School.
