Dates of existence


Olive Mary Vaughan, born on 20 August 1893, first attended The Glasgow School of Art for afternoon Drawing and Painting classes in 1910-11. In 1911-12 she came for afternoon classes, this time Drawing and Painting plus Modelling. During these years she was still at the Girls' High School.

Over the next three years (1912-13, 1913-14 and 1914-15) she took day classes in Drawing and Painting. She is listed as receiving the School Certificate for Needlecraft in the 1914-15 prospectus with a grade of "very good". And in 1915-16, her last year as a student, she switched to evening classes in Design.

In January 1915 she helped with the Tea Room at the Belgium Tryst at The Glasgow School of Art. This was a two-day event with exhibitions, music and shows, organised by students to raise funds for Belgians suffering from the impact of the First World War.

Her younger sister, Edith Margery Vaughan also attended The Glasgow School of Art from 1912.

They lived in Cathkin Road in Langside, Glasgow.
