The Glasgow School of Art Home Front Memorial

To mark the centenary of the First World War, GSA’s Archives & Collections and Exhibitions worked with Louise Welsh, Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Glasgow and Edwin Pickstone, GSA Lecturer, to create a memorial to GSA students, staff and governors who undertook work on the home front.

Consisting of three panels with text written by Louise and letterpress prints created by Edwin, the memorial was informed by archival research. The frame was designed and made by Steven Higgins with lettering from Erin Bradley-Scott.

This memorial is a partnership piece to GSA’s WWI Roll of Honour, created in 1925 by Dorothy Doddrell to commemorate students, staff and governors who had served in the armed forces.

The project was generously funded by Mr James McBroom whose father, James Nicol McBroom, was a prize-winning student at the School and who undertook munitions work during the war.
