World War One Roll of Honour

An illuminated Roll of Honour commissioned by The Glasgow School of Art to commemorate staff and students from Glasgow School of Art who served in World War One. It was designed by a former student, Dorothy Doddrell in 1925, and takes the form of an illuminated parchment in paint and gold leaf, set within a substantial copper and wood framed triptych – one large, central panel and two smaller side panels. The Roll of Honour lists 405 staff, students and governors who served during the conflict. It also cites the regiments served and references those who tragically died.
