Biographical Note

The Glasgow School of Art has its origins in the Glasgow Government School of Design, which was established on 6 January 1845. The Glasgow Government School of Design was one of twenty similar institutions established in the United Kingdom's manufacturing centres between 1837 and 1851. Set up as a consequence of the evidence given to the House of Commons Select Committee on Arts and their connection with Manufactures of 1835-1836, the Government Schools hoped to improve the quality of the country's product design through a system of education that provided training in design for industry. Somerset House was the first of such schools to be established, opening in 1837, and others followed throughout the provinces.

In 1853 the Glasgow Government School of Design changed its name to the Glasgow School of Art. Following the receipt of some funding from the Haldane Academy Trust, (a trust set up by James Haldane, a Glasgow engraver, in 1833), The Glasgow School of Art was required to incorporate the name of the trust into its title. Consequently, it became the Glasgow School of Art and Haldane Academy, although by 1891 the "Haldane Academy" was dropped from the title. Glasgow School of Art was incorporated in 1892. In 1901 the Glasgow School of Art was designated a Central Institution for Higher Art Education in Glasgow and the West of Scotland.

Initially the School was located at 12 Ingram Street, Glasgow, but in 1869, it moved to the Corporation Buildings on Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow. In 1897 work started on a new building to house the School of Art on Renfrew Street, Glasgow. The building was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, former pupil of The Glasgow School of Art. The first half of the building was completed in 1899 and the second in 1909.

The Government Schools ran courses in elementary drawing, shading from the flat, shading from casts, chiaroscuro painting, colouring, figure drawing from the flat, figure drawing from the round, painting the figure, geometrical drawing, perspective, modelling and design. All these courses were introduced from the start at the Glasgow School apart from that of design. The course in design was the "summit of the system" where students came up with original designs for actual manufactures or decorative purposes and it was not until 1849, when Charles Heath Wilson became headmaster, that classes in design began to be taught. Also in this year Bruce Bell was engaged to teach mechanical and architectural drawing.

After 1853 the above pattern of courses was extended to 26 stages which formed the national curriculum for art schools. This system was known as the South Kensington system. An Art Masters could be awarded by gaining certificates in the available subjects. There was no restriction on entry and students could take as long as they wished to accumulate their passes before being awarded their Art Masters.

In 1901 the Glasgow School of Art was given the power to award its own diplomas. In the same year Art 91D classes for day school teachers commenced which were later known as the Art 55 classes. From 1901 to 1979 the School of Art awarded its own diplomas and thereafter it awarded degrees of the Council for National Academic Awards. In the 1970s the School of Fine Art and the School of Design were established. With the demise of the Council for National Academic Awards, from 1993 Glasgow University awarded the School's degrees in fine art and design.

In 1885 the Glasgow School of Art taught architecture and building construction conforming to the South Kensington system. Following on from the designation of the School as a Central Institution and the empowerment of the School to award its own diplomas, the School and the Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College worked together to produce a curriculum for a new course leading to a joint diploma. In 1903 the joint Glasgow School of Architecture was established within the Glasgow School of Art in conjunction with the Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College. For the new diploma design classes were to be taught at the School of Art and the construction classes at the Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College. The first diplomas in architecture were awarded in 1910. In 1924 the Glasgow School of Art became a university teaching institution when the University of Glasgow set up a BSc in Architecture which was to be taught at the School of Architecture. In 1964 the Royal College of Science and Technology (formerly the Royal Technical College, formerly the Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College) merged with the Scottish College of Commerce to form the new University of Strathclyde. Following the merger the Glasgow School of Architecture came to an end, the last students transferring to Strathclyde degrees and graduating in 1968. In 1970 the Mackintosh School of Architecture was established. It is housed within the Glasgow School of Art and forms that school's Department of Architecture. Its degrees are accredited by the University of Glasgow and its Head is the University's Professor of Architecture.

The Glasgow Government School of Design was originally managed, as were the other Government Schools, by the Board of Trade and a Committee of Management representing local subscribers. Then, in 1852, the Government Schools of Design were taken over by the Department of Practical Art. This Department was renamed the Department of Science and Art in 1853 and was located in South Kensington, London. The Committee of Management was replaced in 1892 by the Board of Governors. In 1898, control of the School was transferred again, this time to the Scotch Education Department (renamed the Scottish Education Department in 1918). The School became academically independent in 1901 when it was free to develop its own curriculum and its own diplomas, subject to the approval of the Scottish Education Department. The chief executive of the School was the Headmaster, renamed Director in 1901, and a Secretary and Treasurer was responsible for all aspects of the administration of the School. As the School grew, other administrative posts were added.

Biography or History: The Academic Council was established in 1973 when the Board of Governors was directed by the Scottish Education Department to establish an Academic Council with responsibility for academic development, maintenance of standards and proper conduct of courses. To some extent, this was a change of title for the Board of Studies which, for many years, had advised the Director on the discharge of such tasks on behalf of the Board of Governors. It was larger than the Board of Studies, however, and had various committees and working parties for dealing with matters in detail. The main ones were the General Purposes Committee, the Finance Committee, the Student Progress Committee, the Appointments Committee and the Director's Advisory Committee. The Council's main responsibility was the overall planning, co-ordination, development and supervision of the academic work of the School. It discussed major matters of policy and approved the recommendations of its committees. It comprised thirty members: 18 ex officio members including the Director, Deputy Director and Heads of Departments; four co-opted members including the Senior Tutor and the President of the Students Representative Council; and eight elected members. The full Academic Council meets at least once a term.
Arrangement: The records are arranged as outlined in the description above.

Biography or History: A Library and Materials Committee appears for the first time in the Annual Report of 1908-1909, but the annual reports do not explain its workings any further. The committee's members are listed in Annual Reports until around the Second World War. Charles Rennie Mackintosh was a member of the committee 1909-1916.

At a meeting of the Academic Council on 31 Jan 1974 the School Librarian, Mr Rennie, was asked to convene a small supervisory committee for the Library. This became a sub-committee of the General Purposes Committee and the minutes of the General Purposes Committee of 17 Apr 1974 reported that the Library Committee had been formed with the purpose of: “The maintenance of liaison and the provision of advice in matters affecting book purchases” and “the general assistance which such a Committee may provide to advance the development of the Library”. Members included academic staff from the different departments, and the First Year Course Students’ Representative with the Librarian as convener.

The Library Committee was reconstituted as a sub-committee of the Academic Council at a meeting of the Academic Council held on 13 Nov 1975. Its function would be to advise and assist the Librarian in the encouragement, promotion and evaluation of the use of all relevant library media. Control of resources would rest with the School Librarian, minutes would be kept and a report made to the Academic Council at least once a year. The first meeting of the reconstituted Library Committee was 16 Dec 1975 and the minutes from the first meetings consider issues to do with the library such as classification, stock and staff.

In 1989 The Learning Resources Committee replaced the Library Committee and the Working Group on Learning Resources. The final meeting of the Library Committee was held on 07 Feb 1989. At the meeting of the Academic Council held on 24 Oct 1989 the Learning Resources Committee was given the following remit:

“1. The formulation of policy with regard to the provision and development of teaching and learning resources.

2. Academic matters relating to the use of the Library.

Biography or History: The Research Committee began as the Staff Development and Research Committee and was a sub-committee of the Academic Council. The earliest minutes we hold for this Committee are for 16 Jan 1992 and at this meeting the remit was described as such:

“It was expected that the Committee would take a pro-active approach to the promotion of staff development across the School. A major component of its activity would be the disbursement of the Schools Staff Development Fund.”

In a minute of the Staff Development and Research Committee, 26 May 1993, it was recorded that the Academic Council had decided to separate the Staff Development and the Research Committees. It was agreed that if it was practicable an external from the University should be invited to join the group.

The remit of the Research Committee was:

1. To foster the development of research in all subject areas related to the School’s work.

2. To assist academic staff in the furtherance of their research practise.

3. To raise the level of awareness about matters relating to Art and Design research in Higher Education within the School.

4. To liaise with Glasgow University in particular and other institutions as required to ensure established procedures and new initiatives are effectively conducted.

5. To monitor the progress of those research students and others studying for Higher degrees by research in the School that are not monitored through established procedures in the School of Architecture.

6. To act as a forum for the discussion of bids for research funding and to advise the Directorate on the distribution of funds.

7. To submit minutes and reports of its meetings to the Academic Council and to consider any matters referred to it by the Academic Council.

The Chairman of the Research Committee was a member of the Academic Council appointed by the Academic Council, and one member from each School appointed by the Academic Council sat on the Committee.

The first meeting of newly formed Research Committee was 14 Sep 1993.

Description:

Papers and documents pertaining to reports, reviews, and quality assessments of the Glasgow School of Art and its Courses.

Glasgow School of Art undertakes both internal and external reporting and review processes regularly to ensure the quality of teaching. This is a requirement of the Scottish Funding Council and has long been a requirement of the organisations that fund the School of Art.

As part of the internal Annual Reporting Process, departments were asked to submit Course Reports for the academic year just passed, and in some years, Academic Plans for the years ahead. In some years the Course Reports, Academic Plans, and External Examiner's Reports were used in the creation of the Report to the Senate of the University of Glasgow. The Report to Senate includes: Overview of the Session; Annual Course Monitoring Reports; Response to External Examiners' Comments; and Student Statistics. These files also include draft reports, meeting notes, and files of correspondence and papers relating to the reports.

Reports over 30 years old are available for public consultation. Permission from the board of governors is needed for access to those which are less than 30 years old.

Biography or History: The Glasgow School of Art Academic Council was re-constituted in 1991 and a proposal for the creation of formalised Course Reports was accepted at the 103rd meeting of the Academic Council (16 Dec 1991). The Reports were to be presented to the Academic Standards Committee. Responses to External Examiners' Reports were to be included in the Annual Course Reports.

Part of the annual reporting process was the formation of Proposed Academic Plans and these were to be submitted to the Academic Council. These departmental plans informed the School's overall Strategic Plan.

These documents: The Annual Course Reports, External Examiners' Reports, and the Proposed Academic Plans, were also used in the formation of documents such as Course Reviews and the Annual Report to Senate from 1997 onwards. In the session 1996/1997 the School produced joint Academic Plans/Course Reports. However, due to the complexity of the documents, the School reverted to separate Course Reports and Academic Plans the following year.

Reference: GSAA/AC/5/9

Biography or History: The Glasgow School of Art had been associated with the Council for National Academic Awards since 1974 and as a result of the relationship the School of Art was required to undergo an Institutional Review by the CNAA on a regular basis.

Once the CNAA was closed in 1992, the Art School formed a relationship with the University of Glasgow for the validation of its Design and Fine Art Courses. Institutional Reviews were then undertaken for the University of Glasgow as part of this relationship.

The Enhancement Led Institutional Reviews (ELIR) were conducted by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). Specifically, the ELIR considers the way in which the School manages the student learning experience, the monitoring and review of quality and academic standards and the strategic approach to quality enhancement.

Biography or History: The Council for National Academic Awards (CNAA) was the largest single degree-awarding body in the United Kingdom with over 140 institutions offering first degrees and postgraduate level courses approved by the CNAA.

The CNAA was established in 1965 following a recommendation of the UK Government Committee on Higher Education and in 1974 the National Council for Diplomas in Art and Design was merged with the CNAA.

The Glasgow School of Art had been associated with the CNAA since 1974 and worked with the body to validate and quality assess its courses. The last Diplomas in Art were awarded in 1978 and were replaced with the CNAA degree.

The CNAA was abolished by the 1992 UK Further and Higher Education Act and as a result, the Art School formed a relationship with the University of Glasgow for the validation of its Design and Fine Art Courses.

Extent: 2 archive boxes.
Related Material: A number of the GSA Institutional Reviews were carried out in association with the CNAA. See AC/5/9.

GSAA/AV/1/1, (Item) GSA Fashion Show film, Apr 1978 Add to your favourites. View associated digital content. 
Description:

The 1978 Fashion Show was held in the Mackintosh Lecture Theatre from the 24th to 28th April 1978. The film comprises a combination of still images and film footage of students preparing for the show behind the scenes, and modelling on the stage. There is a mixture of men’s and women’s garments. Styles and themes include metallic fabrics, sportswear, bodysuits and off-the-shoulder dresses. Children’s clothes were also modelled in the show although these are not shown in the film. Garments were designed and modelled mostly by students or former students. Indigo Designs also designed evening dresses for the show. Students involved in the show came from a variety of subject areas and years, including: 1st year; Embroidery and Weaving; Textiles; and Graphics.

Biography or History: The Board of Studies appears to have originated as a small committee established by the Staff Council in May 1925 for the direction of studies, to work with the Director and to meet the Governors if necessary. It comprised the Director, Heads of Departments and the Women's Warden and Supervisor of the Evening School. It met once a month and advised the Director on the discharge of duties relating to academic development, standards and course content. Each department held staff meetings at regular intervals under the chairmanship of the Head of that department. Decisions made at these meetings were reported to the Board of Studies and if supported by the Board then reported to the Board of Governors. The Board of Studies was replaced in 1973 by the Academic Council.

Reference: GSAA/DIR/4
Biography or History: Thomas C Simmonds (1842-1912) had been Headmaster of Derby School of Art before taking over GSA, and he returned to teach at Derby in 1885. He was instrumental in getting the Governors of GSA to see the need for a new building and regularly complained to the Committee of Management about the conditions that the students had to work under. Simmonds had arranged to take up his position at Derby School of Art by April 1885, leaving GSA in May, but his contract was not supposed to end until August. This, plus the attempts by Simmonds to claim all monies he saw as due to him from student successes at the Science and Art examinations in South Kensington, led to an embittered correspondence between himself and the School.

Biography or History: Francis Henry Newbery, known as Fra Newbery, was the Headmaster and Director of the Glasgow School of Art from 1885 to 1918. During that time the profile of the School was raised from that of a moderately successful institution to one with an international reputation.

Newbery was born on 15 May 1855 in Membury, East Devon. He grew up in Dorset and studied as an Art Master in Bridport, before moving to London in 1875 to continue working as an Art Master there. In 1877 he started attending the National Art Training School at South Kensington where he was taught by Edward Poynter and other artists of the time. By 1885 he had taught in most of the School's classes and, at the age of 30, was appointed to the post of Headmaster of Glasgow School of Art.

His success at Glasgow School of Art was led by the acclaim and notoriety surrounding the work of designers and artists such as Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Margaret Macdonald, Frances Macdonald, Herbert McNair, Jessie M King and others working in the 1890s in Glasgow. It was most highly acclaimed at the Turin Exhibition of Decorative Art, 1902. Much of this success was due to Newbery who selected the work and chose Mackintosh to design the rooms for its display. For this work Newbery was awarded an Italian knighthood.

Newbery oversaw the erection of the new School building at 167 Renfrew Street. He had drawn up the brief, based on his own personal experience and the demanding Department of Science and Art specifications, and he appreciated Mackintosh's design for its practical interpretation. In favouring Mackintosh's plans, he was supported by the Governors of Glasgow School of Art and the official Department of Science and Art advisors.

Under the Scottish Education Department in 1901, Newbery devised his own curriculum which led to the award of a Diploma. The course was divided into four stages, which did not necessarily correspond to years - students were moved through at their own pace, some taking seven or eight years and others only three. Many were not ever awarded the Diploma.

Staff brought in by Newbery to teach at the School included, among others, the Belgian Symbolist painter Jean Delville, the English portraitist, Maurice Greiffenhagen, the French Adolphe Giraldon, the English Decorative artists W.E.F. Britten and Robert Anning Bell and, as Head of Architecture, the French architect Eugene Bourdon. There was also a strong core of Glasgow School of Art trained teachers including Jessie Newbery, Ann Macbeth, Dorothy Carleton Smyth, Olive Carleton Smyth, Allan D Mainds, James Gray and de Courcy Lewthwaite Dewar.

Newbery inaugurated many schemes at the School including the Glasgow School of Art Club and the Artist Teachers' Exhibition Society, both of which encouraged exhibitions and competition within the School, and allowed present and former staff and students to meet. He invited leading figures in the art and design worlds to lecture at the School including Walter Crane, C.F.A. Voysey, William Morris and Lewis F. Day. He established good contacts with Glasgow University so that the students received lectures in anatomy, art history, philosophy and literature, beyond those available within the School.

Newbery exhibited with the Glasgow Boys, and had close ties to John Lavery, James Guthrie and E.A. Walton. His paintings were exhibited world-wide and he was particularly successful in Italy. From 1890, most of his holidays were spent in Walberswick, Suffolk, often in the company of other Scottish artists, such as Mackintosh and the young W O Hutchison.

In 1918 he was granted early retirement on medical grounds, and moved to Corfe Castle, Dorset where he continued to paint, mainly in the field of public art. He died at the age of ninety-one on 18 December 1946. Jessie Newbery died sixteen months later.

Arrangement: The material is arranged chronologically.
Related Material: Some Newbery correspondence from 1915 (missing from DIR/5, probably because he was given 6 months absence to recover from a nervous breakdown) can be found in the Secretary and Treasurer's papers for that year (GSAA/SEC/1-2, 1915).

GSAA/DIR/9, (Series) Papers of William Oliphant Hutchison, Director of Glasgow School of Art, 1933-1943, 1933-1943 Add to your favourites. 
Description:

General correspondence, 1934-1943 including: letters to school governors and staff, 1933-1942; Empire Exhibition - committee minutes and papers, 1936-1939, Scottish Council for Art and Industry - committee minutes and papers, 1934-1939; National Register of Industrial Art Designers - committee minutes and papers, 1937-1941; correspondence with the Royal Society of Arts 1939.

The papers that survive from Hutchison's time as director include the typed copy letters from the correspondence that he sent out. Many are related to school business, but there are also a sizeable number of letters of a more private nature. Notable correspondents include D.M. Sutherland, A.R. Sturrock, Nikolaus Pevsner, Muirhead Bone, Douglas Strachan, Tom Purvis, Sir John Richmond, Sir George Pirie and Randolph Schwabe, with many of the original incoming letters surviving in Hutchison's files and the files of the school secretary. These letters provide a vivid account of the Scottish art scene before the outbreak of the Second World War. The wartime letters themselves contain many personal letters of reference for students and staff, as well as accounts of military service from those in training and at the front. Notably, there are letters from Robert MacBryde describing his and Robert Colquhoun's experiences from 1939-1941. Letters from Muirhead Bone display his strong feelings about Scottish nationality and the role of artists during a war.

There are also subject files relating to specific projects that Hutchison undertook, including the Empire Exhibition of 1938, organised by the Scottish Council for Development and held in Bellahouston Park, Glasgow. Hutchison was vice-chairman of the fine art committee and was in charge of selecting examples of Scottish printing for the actual exhibition. He suggested that students decorate the pavilions, and school staff and students, including David Donaldson and Bill Crosbie, were involved in the poster and sculptural competitions. He also arranged that exhibition space be made available for the four Scottish art schools.

Another area of interest was the Council for Art and Industry, an agency set up by the Board of Trade. Its aim was to encourage good design and the Scottish committee of the council spread its sphere of influence widely, addressing education, training, industry, exhibitions and much else. Hutchison was appointed to the Scottish committee of the council in 1934 and was closely involved in its work until the outbreak of World War Two.

The National Register of Industrial Art Designers was set up in London in 1937 at the suggestion of the Council for Art and Industry, and a representative from the Scottish central art institutions was sent every year to attend meetings. The principals of the four Scottish colleges took it in turn, and Hutchison attended in 1940-41. The papers of the previous three years were given to him by the other principals. There is also correspondence relating to the register in the school correspondence, and an account of its creation can be traced in the papers of the Council of Art and Industry.
