Content and Structure
Scope and content
Correspondence and papers relating to affiliations and collaborations between Harry Barnes or the Glasgow School of Art and other bodies, organisations, and societies around Scotland and Britain. Papers include correspondence about various projects, exhibitions, or visits involving the Glasgow School of Art and external cultural committees on which Barnes sat. NB: A small amount of the correspondence in some of these folders is from Anthony Jones, Director of the Art School after Barnes. Jones appears to have carried on some of this correspondence on behalf of Barnes, as his successor.
