GSA Tour Guides visit the ACC


Last night some of the team of GSA tour guides visited the Archives and Collections Centre to explore further research materials to help inform their tours.

The School’s collection includes the student registers where Charles Rennie Mackintosh, who studied at, and subsequently design the school, is listed.

Mackintosh curator Peter Trowles answered many questions on the building plans and construction from the curious tour guides.

The School’s collection holds Mackintosh’s Northern Italian Sketchbook, a digitised version of which can be accessed online here.

The School’s Archivist Susannah Waters discussed the academic and social history of the School and student life throughout the ages.

‘The Magazine’, a student publication by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his contemporaries at the GSA, in the Archives and Collections Centre. This recently digitised resource can be explore online here
