Dates of existence


Helen Dargavel attended The Glasgow School of Art between 1917 and 1922. The School's records contain conflicting information regarding her year of birth. Both 1897/1898 are cited, with 1898 being used more frequently. Dargavel's address is listed as Innes Street, Inverness, but for session 1920-21 a second address was listed: 'c/o Haldane, Bath Street, Glasgow' and for session 1921-22 another: 'c/o Robertson, St Georges Road, Glasgow'.

Dargavel attended day school throughout and took classes in Drawing and Painting. In 1917-18 she also undertook classes in needlecraft and lettering, and in 1920 she took an unspecified class within the Design department. Little more is known about Dargavel, although it appears from the records that she received some external funding from the Highland Society and the Secondary Education Committee in order to attend her classes.

Although a connection is not certain, the Inverness Burgh Post Office Directory from 1911-12 lists a William Dargavel, Engine Driver, in the residence later listed as being Helen Dargavel's home in the Glasgow School of Art registers.
