Dates of existence


William M. Webster was born on the 21st of March 1893. It has not been possible to trace his birth certificate but it may be that his parents were William M. Webster, a brush salesman and Isabella Webster, and that he lived with his parents and younger brother, Hugh, in Byres Road in 1901. Webster spent a limited time at The Glasgow School of Art, taking an evening class in drawing and painting in the 1914 -15 session whilst working as a timber salesman. However, he did not complete the year and left to enlist with the army. He served with the Royal Engineers and survived the hostilities but did not return to The Glasgow School of Art. William M. Webster is commemorated on The Glasgow School of Art's First World Roll of Honour.
