Dates of existence


Born on the 5th of November 1898, it seems likely that this is Catriona McK Campbell, daughter of John Campbell, a solicitor in Oban, and Jane Campbell (nee Forbes) of Hillhead, Glasgow. The 1901 census lists the family as living at 'Tighaneus' in Oban, with another daughter, Agnes, two years older than Catriona. Completing the household was a twenty year old servant, Annie Nicolson, who came from Barra. Catriona first enrolled as a day student studying Drawing and Painting in 1916. In that year, 585 students enrolled at the Art School, twenty eight of whom came from Argyll. Her term time address was listed as 777 New City Road, where she stayed for the following three sessions, leaving the School in 1920. She was obviously a successful student, winning the Messrs Roberson and Sons first prize for painting in 1917. In the same year, the register records receipt of a Carnegie bursary and a 'Highland Soc' award, presumably the annual day school bursary awarded by the Glasgow Highland Society, and a figure of £40 is clearly legible in this column. Her 1917 enrolment also records that at New City Road, she was staying 'care of' Mrs D Stewart, and that her home address was Argyll Mansions in Oban. It appears the family had moved to this address from Tighaneus. Argyll Mansions, described as one of Scotland's finest tenements, was built between 1905 and 1907 and designed by William Leiper. Probably best known today for his designs for the Templeton Carpet Factory on Glasgow Green, Leiper's domestic designs were popular with the affluent professional families and he deigned many grand villas in and around Helensburgh and Kilmacolm. In 1921 a student called Ian Campbell, also with a home address of Argyll Mansions, Oban, enrolled to study architecture (student no. 835) He too stayed 'care of' a Mrs D Stewart, though living at 461 Maryhill Road. Born on the 22nd of October 1902, he was born after the date of the 1901 census, but it seems very likely that this was Catriona's younger brother.
