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 School was originally governed by a Committee of Management. This comprised a president, two vice presidents, a treasurer, a secretary and ten other members, all of whom were elected by the School's subscribers at annual general meetings. The Committee was responsible for the whole management and direction of the affairs of the institution, and the appointment of all officers and servants with the exception of those appointed by the Government Council at Somerset House.

Meetings of the Committee were held once a month or more often if necessary. Three members of the Committee were required to retire each year. An annual meeting was held in April at which three new members were elected to replace the three retiring, the office bearers for the next year were appointed, and the Committee presented a report of proceedings and audited financial statements for the past year. The first annual general meeting was held in April 1846. At all general meetings each member had one vote and the chairman had a deliberative and casting vote. Special general meetings could also be called.

The Treasurer dealt with all the income and expenditure of the School and was responsible for keeping accounts of all receipts and payments. The Committee also had the power to fix the terms of admission of students, and to make bye-laws, regulations and orders as necessary and to appoint subcommittees.

In 1892, following the School's incorporation under the Companies Acts in that year, a Board of Governors replaced the Committee of Management and the President was replaced by a Chairman. In addition, representatives were now elected from the principal public bodies of the city of Glasgow.

In 1974 two statutory instruments were passed that affected the constitution of the Board. Statutory Instrument 1974 No. 1410 (S124) resulted in the rule that two governors should be elected by the Secretary of State and that members of the academic staff be elected. Statutory Instrument 1974 No. 102 (S.3) required that the President of the Students' Representative Council become a Governor of the School ex-officio and that students were given the right to appoint a governor from their own number.

Following Statutory Instrument 1988 No. 1715 (S163) from 1 January 1989 the Board was reconstructed with a core membership and co-opted members. The core membership was the Director, the President of the Students' Representative Council and Deputy Director as ex-officio members. Other core members were three staff governors, one appointed by the Academic Council, one by the academic staff and one by the non-academic staff. The rest of the core consisted of thirteen governors initially appointed by the Secretary of State; thereafter these governors would appoint their own successors. Further to this up to six more members could be co-opted. Following the Further and Higher Education (Scotland) Act 1992 in 1993 it was decided that all governors should be on an equal footing thus removing the distinction between core and co-opted members.

On 14 February 1996 "The Glasgow School of Art (Scotland) Order of Council 1996" came into force, making new provisions regarding the constitutional functions and powers of the Governors.

At the present time, the Board meets five times a year and has six committees all formally constituted with terms of reference and comprising mainly of lay members of the Board. The committees are Investment, Estates, Business, Audit, Human Resources and Museum and Archive.

Arrangement: The records are arranged in thematic series in the order described in the description above.

Biography or History : Following the receipt of 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.

Biography or History: The Building Committee was established in 1896 by the Board of Governors to oversee work on a new building to house the School of Art. The School had initially been located at 12 Ingram Street, Glasgow and in 1869 had moved to the Corporation Buildings (now the MacLellan Galleries) on Sauchiehall Street. This accommodation had never been ideal and, with the growth of the School, was becoming increasingly cramped. As early as 1883, the governors of the School had begun lobbying for subscriptions to build a new, purposely designed art school. Through private and government funding, and with a large donation of both land and money from the Bellahouston Fund, they acquired land in Renfrew Street upon which to build.

An architectural competition was launched in 1896 with local architects being invited to submit plans anonymously. Working to a budget of just GBP14,000, the Glasgow firm of Honeyman and Keppie, submitted a design from the hand of one of their junior draughtsman, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The design was praised by the Headmaster, Francis Newbery, and after being independently assessed by the educational authorities in London, was finally accepted. Building work commenced in 1897 and by 1899 the first phase of the School, the East wing, had been completed, incorporating the Museum, Director's room and the original board room. There then followed a long delay whilst additional funding was secured, and, in 1906, an Extension Committee was established to consider the question of the completion of the School buildings. A Building Committee was subsequently established in 1907. The second half of the building's construction, the West wing, was begun in 1907 and completed two years later. This was to be Mackintosh's finest achievement. In total contrast to the earlier austere facades to the South and East, the West wing with its dramatic design and dominating windows heralded the birth of a new style in 20th century European architecture.

In the years after the completion of the Mackintosh building the School grew considerably and more accommodation was soon needed. Property on the opposite side of Renfrew Street was acquired between 1915 and 1926 and was used to provide temporary accommodation. The governors decided to convert these buildings properly and, in 1926, they issued an appeal and drew up a scheme for the extension of the School. The School extension was opened in 1929.

Arrangement: The records are arranged into ten series as outlined in the description.

NB. The earliest property records from 1845-69, added to this finding aid later, are under GOV/5/11

Related Material: The earliest property records are under GOV/5/11 as a later addition to this finding aid and date from 1845-69.

Biography or History: In the years after the completion of the Mackintosh building the School grew considerably and more accommodation was soon needed. Property on the opposite side of Renfrew Street was acquired between 1915 and 1926 and was used to provide temporary accommodation. The governors decided to convert these buildings properly and, in 1926, they issued an appeal and drew up a scheme for the extension of the School. The first portion of the School extension was formally opened on 18 Dec 1929 by Sir George MacDonald.

Arrangement: Arranged chronologically
Extent: 1 folder

Biography or History: Between 1987-1988 Prince Charles, H.R.H The Prince of Wales, was invited by Glasgow School of Art to become 'Visitor' of the School in recognition of the interest and concern which his Royal Highness has for the disciplines of Fine Art, Design and Architecture.

The role of Visitor appears to have derived from ancient Universities such as Oxford University where the appointed Visitor had certain powers designed to safeguard the proper running of the institution. This role at the Glasgow School of Art was proposed to be an honorific one rather than honorary and to include occasional visits to, and support of, the School. Prince Charles accepted the invitation on 01 Mar 1988.

Following a close examination of the role of 'Visitor' by all UK Universities in 2000, the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education recommended that the role involved duties concerning student complaints procedures and in order that the School of Art could establish an Independent Review Panel, the designation of 'Visitor' had to be corrected. Therefore the title of H.R.H The Prince of Wales changed from 'Visitor' to 'Patron' on 10 Jul 2001.

Biography or History: The Business Committee was formed on 22 Mar 2000 when the business of the Chairman's Committee, the Finance Committee, and the Estates Committee was seen to have significant overlaps, creating duplication of work and slowing down the decision making process.

The proposed solution was to establish the Business Committee that would join the functions of the Chairman's and Finance Committees. Its remit would include financial monitoring, recommending the annual budget and strategic plan to the Board, and other operational matters. The Committee also acts as the Remuneration Committee and the Nominations Committee. The last Chairman's Committee meeting was 31 May 2000 and the last Finance Committee meeting was 01 Jun 2000.

The first meeting of the Business Committee was on 26 Sep 2000.

From 2014 the Business Committee was known as the 'Business and Estates Committee', until its name returned to the 'Business Committee' in 2017.

Arrangement: Arranged chronologically.

Biography or History: The Estates Committee began life as the Building Committee, a committee established in 1896 to oversee the construction of the building now known as the Mackintosh Building that houses the Glasgow School of Art. At a meeting of the Board of Governors it was reported that subscriptions had reached £21,000 and that it was time to appoint a committee. The first meeting of the Building Committee was 16 Mar 1896 and these minutes are kept separately from the Governors minutes, at GOV/5/1. These minutes run until 1910.

The Building Committee next appears in the Governor’s Minutes in 1927 and minutes survive from 1926-1930 within the papers of the School Extension; when the School extended into buildings opposite the Mackintosh Building (see GOV/5/10). The committee then seems to have disbanded until 1959 when there was a meeting of the ‘Fabric Committee’: a ‘rejuvenated’ committee to oversee work needing done to the School buildings. An ad hoc Building Committee was formed in 1962 and the Fabric and Building Committees were then amalgamated at the Annual General meeting of the Governors on 19 Dec 1967 to form the ‘Building and Fabric’ Committee. It was agreed that this amalgamated committee would meet regularly to deal with all matters concerning new buildings and the first meeting of the new Building and Fabric Committee was 17 Jun 1968.

The Building and Fabric Committee then changed name to the ‘Estates Management Committee’ on 14 Apr 1993. The remit of the Estates Management Committee was to support and monitor the performance of the Director in their responsibility for the development and implementation of the Capital Works and Maintenance programmes of the School, and upholding Health and Safety legislation.

The name of the committee changed from the ‘Estates Management Committee’ to the ‘Estates Committee’ in 1999, then became the ‘Estates Strategy Committee’ from 2000-2005 before reverting back to the ‘Estates Committee’ from 2006-2010. The Estates Committee was amalgamated with the Business Committee to form the ‘Business and Estates Committee’ from 2014 to 2017 when the committees were separated again. The minutes and papers for the ‘Business and Estates Committee’ can be found within the papers of the Business Committee at GOV/2/2. Then the Committee was named the 'Estates Development Committee' before once more reverting back to the 'Estates Committee' in 2017.

Biography or History: On 02 Apr 1886 the Board of Governors of the Glasgow School of Art appointed a Sub Committee to oversee matters relating to teaching staff. This committee became known as the ‘School Sub Committee’ in 1887 and by 1901 it was known as the ‘School Committee’. Its name changed to ‘School and Staff Committee’ in 1934 and was known as this until it was amalgamated with the Joint Consultative Committee in 1999.

In 1982 regular consultative procedures were set up for non-academic staff and this took the form of the Joint Consultative Committee, initially established as a result of a meeting with the National and Local Government Officers’ Association (NALGO) representatives. The committee included union representatives and was approved by the Board of Governors on 26 May 1982. The first meeting of the Joint Consultative Committee was 15 Oct 1982. The committee was reconstituted, to give it clearer purpose, in 1985 and three Governors were nominated to sit on the committee.

In June 1999 the School and Staff Committee was amalgamated with the Joint Consultative Committee and this was renamed the ‘Personnel Committee’, a policy committee to discuss and comment on policy and procedures in relation to staffing matters. The first meeting of the Personnel Committee was 08 Sep 1999. The Committee initially reported to the Chairman’s Committee but on 07 Dec 1999 it became a full committee of the Board of Governors. The name changed to ‘Human Resources Committee’ in Nov 2006.
