Dates of existence


Ethel Dawes, born 17/04/1889, attended day classes in Drawing and Painting at The Glasgow School of Art during the 1918-19 session. Her address is listed as Burleigh Place, Dumbarton. Her occupation is noted as "Assistant Mistress".

It should also be noted that Dawes is listed as having an initial which is not easy to read, but appears to be 'N'. In the 1919-20 session the school was attended by a pupil named 'E Norah Dawes' with the birthdate 17/04/1888, and occupation 'School Mistress (Asst.)' (Reg No: 750). This E. N. Dawes resided in Windermere. This may be coincidence but it has been noted in this biography so that the reader may consider the possibility that both parties are in fact the same person, and have been noted as having different birthdays due to administrative error.
