Dates of existence
George Gregory was born in England in 1877. On 30 September 1902 he married his wife Maude in Upton, England. He and his new wife must have immediately travelled to Scotland as on 6 October 1902, it is recorded In The Glasgow School of Art Annual Report that he was introduced at the school committee meeting held there on 6 October 1902.The Report also confirms that Gregory was offered and accepted the position of modelling master starting forthwith to be paid £55 until the end of the session with £2 travelling expenses. In addition to his teaching, Gregory also studied at The Glasgow School of Art as part of a continuing education programme, known as Article 91D classes, organised by the School from 1901. He continued to take evening classes in modelling until 1909 while his work as an instructor in ornament and wood carving with Scuplture and Modelling continued until 1914. Gregory and his wife had 5 children; George Albert born in 1903, Agnes Mary born in 1905, William John born in 1909 and twins Richard and Ethel born in January 1915. The following year, on 28 November 1916 he was enlisted with the Royal Flying Core which later merged with the Royal Naval Air Service becoming the RAF on 1 April 1918. Gregory remained with the RAF for the duration of the war until his transfer to the RAF Ground Reserve in February 1919. He was finally deemed discharged in April 1920. His wife and children were living in London by this point and it is likely following his war service Gregory returned to join them there. George Gregory is commemorated on The Glasgow School of Art's First World War Roll of Honour.
