fl 1950s-


Robert (Bob) M Finnie was a student at The Glasgow School of Art c.1952-57. He was awarded a diploma in Printed Textiles and a post diploma award in the same. He lectured in Printed Textiles from 1958 to the mid seventies. He set up a screen printing facility for general student use but CNNA rules decreed that it must belong to a School. At this time he was promoted to senior lecturer and opted to become part of Fine Art in the Department of Printmaking. Here he was instrumental in setting up a pilot Fine Art photographic area in anticipation of the creation of a new degree in Fine Art Photography with the appointment of a new head of the same. About this time he was appointed a Governer of the School and served on the Building and Fabric Commitee until his retiral from the School in December 1989.
Bob is credited on the 1978 fashion show programme for printing.
