Allan Glen’s School

Allan Glen's Will stated that his Trustees were to invest his estate to build and endow a school, the purpose of which was "to give a good practical education and preparation for trades or businesses, to between forty to fifty boys, the sons of tradesmen or persons in the industrial classes of society". This was called Allan Glen's School and it opened in 1853.

The Allan Glen Book of Remembrance 1939 – 1945, dedicated by the Reverend W. Roy Sanderson in the Barony of Glasgow, 27 April 1949. The book commemorates former pupils and staff members of Allan Glen’s School who lost their lives in the service of their country.
The original is on display in the Barony Hall, Rottenrow East, University of Strathclyde.
A copy of the book is held in Special Collections, Strathclyde University Archives.

The following extracts and photographs are reproduced by permission of Strathclyde University Archives.

“This book is dedicated to the memory of these pupils of Allan Glen’s School
who honoured us with their lives in the Second World War.”

Note according to the old school website this book has now returned (in 2016) to the new Allan Glen campus of the City of Glasgow College, so that is where I have located it, for WMR purposes
