Scope and content

The photograph features Archibald Haswell Miller and Josephine Haswell Miller alongside a group of males and females.

The supporting text reads "A group at the meeting of the Governors of the Glasgow School of Art this week, when Mr John D. Revel (centre), of Chelsea, was introduced to the board on the occasion of his taking up duty.–"Bulletin" Photo." The newscutting is supported by a handwritten map located below it. It offers the list of names and the location of the subjects in the photograph.

The cardboard also displays additional annotations by Haswell Miller: "We accepted him with all kindness and welcome. After a few weeks he called the staff together and practically told us he was going to sack the lot! I anticipated this by accepting the keepership of the National Galleries. Edinburgh. (Not very well qualified but standard were low in 1930)".

An annotation on the top right corner of the cardboard shows "c1928". Additional annotations below the photograph identify the people featured in it.
