Digital PDF copies exist for GOV/1/173 onwards and these can be found on the Glasgow School of Art website and are also stored within Archives and Collections.

The Glasgow School of Art

Article 55 class records

These papers comprise material relating to the administration of the Article 55 classes run by Glasgow School of Art between 1901 and 1965. Records in this series include class registers, class lists, correspondence, and enrolment forms. Class registers record details of attendance by students including examinations attended, examination marks, the number of days and hours attended and whether attending Thursday or Saturday classes. Class lists record details of students enrolled in each class. Often there are also lists which include the students' final marks. However there is a separate run of class lists at the end of the main run of papers in this series (REG/10/54) which include final marks. Apart from correspondence, administrative papers can sometimes be found such as copies of blank certificates, prospectuses, and notes on class finances. Enrolment forms are also known as entrance slips or admission slips, changing their names over the years. Details recorded include desired course and session to be enrolled upon, name and address of student, date of birth, whether a certified or assistant teacher, name of school in which employed, previous attainments in subject; previous attendance in subject under Article 91(d)/Article 55, number of hours attended, marks. Over the years different types of forms are used. Noticeably, applications for admission to the summer courses were made on the Glasgow Provincial Committee's own forms which are different from the School's forms and called application forms. Finally this series also contains four volumes relating to the Article 55 classes (REG/10/55-58). These are listed at the end of the series and include index and fees books.
