Cadenhead was a Scottish landscape and portrait painter. He was born in Aberdeen, the only son of the procurator-fiscal, and received his early training in art in that city, showing an aptitude for black and white drawing, etching and portraiture. He was encouraged in his art endeavours by Dr. John Forbes White (art collector and photographer, and brother-in-law of surgeon and photographer, Thomas Keith) who aroused his interest in the old masters, and artists of the French Barbizon and modern Dutch schools. He went on to the Royal Scottish Academy schools in Edinburgh, then, in 1882, to Paris to study at the atelier of Carolus-Duran. There he was also strongly influenced by the work of Jean Charles Cazin (1840-1901).
Cadenhead returned to Aberdeen in 1884, moving to Edinburgh in 1891. In 1893, he was elected a member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour, and in 1902 was made an Associate of the Royal Scottish Academy.

Callista, Sister

  • S655
  • Person

Sister Callista, born Mary Catherine McGeehan on 6 March 1877, is first recorded under her birth name at the Glasgow School of Art in 1888 when she was just 9 years of age. Part of a large and artistically gifted family, she travelled to the School with her two elder sisters, Jessie Mary and Annie Louise (Aniza) from Rawyards, Airdrie, where their father, Patrick, was a businessman and deeply involved in the town's community and church life. All three women went on to become respected artists and another younger sister, Elizabeth, followed in their footsteps enrolling at the School in 1902. Although her elder sisters are listed in the register again in 1989, Mary's name does not appear.

In 1904 she entered the Order of Sisters of Notre Dame, taking her final vows in 1914; that same year she registered at the School again, now as Sister Callista, with her address recorded as Notre Dame Training College, Dowanhill. Sister Callista does not appear on the roll for the following year, but re-registered in 1916, 1917 and 1918 joining the metalwork course for each of the four years. For at least two years, she was taught by a Mr Davidson, presumably Peter Wylie Davidson, Assistant Master of Decorative Art and Metalwork, member of staff from 1897 - 1934/5. Obviously a talented student, she won the Mrs D Macleod prize in 1915 awarded for enamel and silversmithing. Notre Dame Training College opened in 1895, the first (female) Catholic Teacher Training College in Scotland and Dowanhill Higher Grade Practising School two years later. The rapid expansion of the school meant that a new chapel and further buildings were soon required. In addition to her teaching duties (she eventually became the Principal art teacher at the Training College in Dowanhill), Sister Callista was responsible for a rose window and four side windows painted for the chapel. When the Training College moved to Bearsden in 1969 (later becoming St Andrew's College of Education) the glass was removed from Dowanhill and placed in storage at Bearsden. Following amalgamation with the University of Glasgow to form the new Faculty of Education, the building was closed in 2002. Four of the windows, Christ the King, Our Lady Queen of the World, St Joseph the Worker and St Peter were then installed in St Peter's Church in Partick, Glasgow.

In addition to producing stained glass, Sister Callista also produced illustrations for a book describing the life of St Julie Billiart, the foundress of the teaching order of Notre Dame de Namur. Perhaps one of her most prestigious commissions was for a large Assumption window for the chapel of the Notre Dame Mother House in Namur, Belgium. Sister Callista died at Notre Dame convent in Glasgow in 1960. Another nun, Sister Campion (see separate entry) studied alongside Sister Callista, following exactly the same course. Notre Dame School continues to teach girls of secondary school age in the West End of Glasgow. It is the only single sex comprehensive school in Scotland.

Dugald Cameron OBE was Director of The Glasgow School of Art from 1991-1999.

Dugald was born in Glasgow in 1939 and spent his early life near Clydebank. He was educated at the High School of Glasgow. After a number of false starts on leaving school, including a very short time as an apprentice in Rolls-Royce, he entered the Junior non-diploma class at The Glasgow School of Art in January 1957 at the inspired suggestion of Harry Jefferson Barnes, then Registrar and Deputy Director, and thereafter completed the Diploma Course and a Post-Diploma specialising in Industrial Design. He had the great good fortune to be taught drawing by W Drummond Bone, from Ayr, and design by James Goodchild and Joe McCrum. Winning the Trades House of Glasgow travelling scholarship in 1961, he visited Scandinavia which was then the focus of international design.

Shortly after completing his post-diploma he became a part time teacher at GSA in December 1962, then Senior Lecturer in charge of Industrial Design in 1970, Head of Design in 1982 and Director of the School in 1991, retiring in October 1999. He had been appointed to a Chair in the Technische Hogeschool, Delft in 1970 but did not take it up.
During much of that time he practised as a freelance industrial designer working for over forty UK and American companies and, in 1977 with Alan Carlaw, established Squadron Prints, a small enterprise producing commercial lithographs of aircraft, ships and a few other subjects in profile.

On retiral he became a Visiting Professor at the University of Strathclyde in the Department of Design, Manufacturing and Engineering Management and a Visiting Professor to the Department of Aerospace Engineering at The University of Glasgow.

Throughout his life he has been sustained by his enthusiasms for railways, aviation and drawing. He has written and compiled a number of books on aspects of Glasgow’s aviation and railway history, and given many talks on Scotland’s aviation and railway history.

Henry Cameron was born on 27 March 1889 and first attended evening classes in Drawing and Painting at The Glasgow School of Art in 1903/4 while living at 9 Temple Gardens in Anniesland. His occupation is listed as coachpainter and this is mentioned again in his enrollment on the same course for the following session, 1904/5. After a gap of several years, he registered again in 1915/6 and 1917/8. For both sessions, his address is given as 83 Elderslie Street and his occupation changes to heraldry painter, then reverts to coachpainter for his final year of study.

Post Office street directories suggest he must have moved to Elderslie Street some time after 1912. He does not appear to have been born in Scotland.<p/>For many years, the College Prospectus included a breakdown of students by occupation, and in 1915-16, of the 524 ordinary students registered at the School, 10 were listed as 'housepainters, china painters etc.' This was well down on the previous year, when there were twenty from this background, and may reflect the numbers of young men signing up.
