Dates of existence


William Young attended the Glasgow School of Art for almost two years from 1918.

His age is a little unclear as his date of birth is recorded as 21st February 1894 and also as 24 February 1895 but he would have been in his early 20s when he started classes.

He took day classes in 1918-1919 in ticket writing. His address at this point was 41 Rolland Street.

In 1919-1920 he moved from 41 Rolland Street to 50 Cameron Street, off New City Road. His occupation is given as painter He was taking day classes in ticket writing and lettering. He is listed as being a Student under the Pensions Committee (Ministry of Labour) along with approximately 80 other people in that year's admissions.

However his entry in the register for 1919-20 is scored out and it's recorded that he left at the middle of February.
