  • DC 022
  • Collection
  • 1860-1969

The Anderson family archive includes material of 5 of its members, namely the sisters Violet Meikle (1873-?), Daisy Agnes McGlashan (1879-1968), Daisy's husband William Smith Anderson (1877-1929) and their two daughters Daisy M Anderson (1910-1996) and Agnes Violet Neish (nee Anderson) (c1912-2005).

The Anderson Family archive contains family papers, sketchbooks, photographs and letters from 1860 to 1969.

The archive contains a number of sketchbooks kept by family members. Those belonging to the women contain flower drawings and schemes for ornamentation whilst William Anderson's books reflect his life as a commercial traveller for an ironfounder's firm and contain scenes from London and elsewhere, as well as technical drawings and plans. As many of the members of Daisy Anderson's family attended the Glasgow School of Art, the collection throws light on the work of the School from the 1880s-1950s.

Additionally the collection includes correspondence, newscuttings and photographs. Please note that this material is not yet fully catalogued and therefore some items may not be accessible to researchers.

Some of this material was damaged in the fire in GSA's Mackintosh Building on 23rd May 2014, and has since undergone conservation.

Photographs

A collection of photographs and negatives taken by George Oliver dating from 1948-1990 (apart from two dated c1897). George arranged his photographs into folders by approximate subject matter and gave each folder a title. This has been reflected in the catalogue with the folder titles in the catalogue being the exact titles George used. The folders have been arranged by subject matter where possible. There are exceptions to the above. Folders DC 066/2/20 and DC 066/2/86 have not been given a title by George and have been catalogued as 'Untitled'. There are exceptions to this with DC 066/2/78 containing photographs taken by Cordelia Oliver as they date from after George's death. As a result of the Mackintosh Building fire in 2014, folders DC 066/2/87, DC 066/2/88 and DC 066/2/89 contain photographs that have been rehoused since their deposit and are likely to have been taken out of other folders. It is not clear from which folders these photographs came originally, so they have been catalogued separately with their titles reflecting the subject matter of the photographs they contain.
