Trinity College, University of Glasgow, University Avenue, Glasgow G12 8QQ



Trinity College, Glasgow, Scotland, is the Church of Scotland's College at the University of Glasgow. It provides special supervision of candidates for the ministry through a Principal (appointed by the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland) and a College Council. The College is the official channel of liaison between the University of Glasgow, the Church of Scotland, and the United Free Church of Scotland.
The Glasgow College, funded by local subscription, was established in 1856. It was a multi-disciplinary institution of considerable reputation, existing outside the University of Glasgow's Faculty of Divinity. In 1872 Thomas Martin Lindsay was appointed Professor of church history, and he became principal of the college in 1902.
Later, in 1930, following the reunion of the churches and theological teaching facilities, the Glasgow Church College was renamed "Trinity College". After the reunion of the main Scottish Presbyterian churches in 1929–30, the two teaching facilities in the University and the Church College were reintegrated. After 1976, when the Church-owned Trinity College buildings at Park Circus were finally vacated, all teaching of theology took place in the university Divinity Faculty. Accordingly, while Trinity College still exists, it is a body without walls.

William took a BA at Oxford before studying theology at Glasgow, where he first matriculated in the autumn of 1901. He did very well.
In his first year he took fourth places in three of his classes - Divinity, Junior Hebrew and Church History. In his second year he gained merits in Divinity and Biblical Criticism and Hebrew, as well as a special prize for Hebrew recitation. In his final year, he excelled again, placed third in Divinity and Biblical Criticism, seventh in Church History and gained a merit for his efforts in the Syriac class. He graduated BD in April 1904, with the Jamieson Prize, worth GBP 10, for excellence in examinations for the degree.
After graduation he served as Assistant to the Reverend Dr Playfair of St Andrews before getting his own parish in Elie in 1907. He married Muriel May on 30th March 1915. By then he was a soldier. In early September 1914 the St Andrews Presbytery granted him leave of absence for the duration of the war. He was one of the first ministers to enlist as a combatant.
He signed up first as a trooper for the Fife and Forfar Yeomanry but obtained a commission as a Lieutenant in the Rifle Brigade on 22nd January 1915. Initially serving in the 6th (Reserve) battalion, he was transferred to the 2nd (Regular) after that battalion suffered heavy losses at Fromelles on the Aubers Ridge.

Memorial: DAR ES SALAAM BRITISH AND INDIAN MEMORIAL
Additional Information:

Obituary from the Hillhead High School War Memorial Volume:
"Robert Hellier Napier was born at Yoker on 12th August 1884. He entered Hillhead High School in 1898, going two years later to Morrison's Academy Crieff, where he became Dux of School in 1901. He always spoke with great affection of his life at Hillhead High School. At the University he fulfilled all the promise of his school days and proved to be a brilliant and distinguished student.
Having graduated with 2nd Class Honours in Classics in 1905 he entered Divinity Hall of the Church of Scotland, gaining there many prizes and other distinctions, including the Caird Prize in Divinity two years consecutively, a prize in Church History, second prize in Divinity and Biblical Criticism, and a prize in Hebrew and Semitic Languages. At the close of his Divinity course he gained the BD degree, and the Black Fellowship as the first student of his year.
During his college career his energies were spread over a wide field; he was an enthusiastic volunteer and played a prominent part in the Union debates; he was President of the Christian Union, and his popularity with his fellows was evidenced by his election as President of the Student Representative Council (SRC).
At the close of a short period of service with Dr Menzies Fergusson Logie, he was ordained in 1909 as a missionary of the Church of Scotland, and sailed for Nyasaland. In the mission field he found his true vocation. In addition to his regular work as missionary in Blantyre and Zomba, he shared in the translation of the Bible into the native language, and had the privilege of training the first native missionaries.
On the outbreak of war he took part in the defence of Nyasaland, doing valuable service in charge of the native transport lines; later he served with the native transport in German East Africa. His great linguistic attainments enabled him to take the post of Intelligence Officer to the British Force, and it was while attached as Lieutenant to the 4/1st King's Africa Rifles that he fell in Portuguese Africa on the 11th February 1918. Fearless and zealous in the cause of others he had gone forward to reconnoitre the enemy's lines, when he fell mortally wounded. Robert Napier's loss can never be rightly estimated. His memory lives and inspires."

The boys were educated at the High School and later went up to the University of Glasgow together in 1907, Francis to the Arts Faculty, and John to the Faculty of Medicine. By that time their father, Hamilton, was a Supervisor of Inland Revenue and the family lived at Baliscate, Tobermory. Away from home, the brothers shared accommodation in Glasgow at 49 Arlington Street, Woodlands.
Francis had been a gifted student at school and had shown considerable literary talents as a contributor to the school magazine. In his first year at university first year, he studied Latin and German. After a successful undergraduate career he graduated Master of Arts with Honours in 1911. Thereafter he entered the Divinity Hall of the United Presbyterian Church and had almost completed his theological course when war broke out.
The brothers enlisted in the army. Francis served as a Lieutenant in the 14th Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders and acted for some time as a recruiting officer to the 14th and 15th Battalions. Attached to a Regiment of the Gordons, he was in command of the leading company of the Highland Brigade in the advance on Passchendaele on 26th October 1917 and was killed in action.

Their younger brother, Hamilton George Bryce Teggart, followed in their footsteps to the University of Glasgow in autumn 1917 to study Medicine and was, mercifully, spared their fate in war. He graduated MB ChB in 1922.

It was begun by French troops in November 1914 and adopted by the 2nd Scottish Rifles in June 1917. Named Perth after the Scottish town it was also called China Wall after the communication trench known as the Great Wall of China.

Before that, James was educated at Rothesay Academy, where he acquitted himself well and he went up to University in 1909 to study for an MA.
James spent the next five years making his way through his courses in the Arts Faculty and passing most of his exams: Mathematics and Latin in 1910; English and Logic in 1911; Philosophy in 1912; Higher English, Philosophy and Economics in 1913.

Date of Death: 12/05/1916
Age: 24
Regiment/Service: Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) 12th Bn.
Panel Reference: Panel 57 to 59.
Memorial: LOOS MEMORIAL
Additional Information: Son of the Rev. Kenneth Smith, of The Manse, Oban, Argyllshire.

John MacDonald Smith was born on 20th May 1890 in Stornoway, where his father Kenneth, was a Minister. John planned to follow in his father’s footsteps but events were to intervene. His career began well. He matriculated in the Faculty of Arts in the autumn of 1909 to study Latin and Geology, and he found a place to live during term time in the Students residence at 11 Wilson Street, Hillhead.
At the end of his first year, he passed his exams and gained a merit certificate in Geology. The following year he took Greek, Logic and English, and went on to take Moral Philosophy and Higher English in third year, History, Economics and Philosophy in his final year. It was very much the kind of curriculum that bridged Arts and Divinity, and he graduated MA on 22nd November 1913.
To date, his path was almost identical to his classmate, James Archibald Montgomery Miller. There was also a Rothesay connection. At this time the Smith family residence was at Clan Villa, Rothesay and the families may well have known each other before University or at school.
In addition to meeting in a number of classes, they were both members of the OTC and both became students of Divinity. Both enlisted in fighting units and both were sent to the Western Front.
Sadly, the parallel went further. 2nd Lieutenant Smith was also killed in action. He died on 12th May 1916 at Loos, also aged 25, though just a few days short of his twenty-sixth birthday. When the news came, his father was a Minister at Oban.

MacDONALD, CHARLES GORDON
Rank: Second Lieutenant
Date of Death: 15/06/1915
Age: 26
Regiment/Service: Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) 6th Bn.
Panel Reference: Panel 15 and 16.
Memorial: LE TOURET MEMORIAL
Additional Information: Son of Johanna Margaret Macdonald, of Chapelton Terrace, Bearsden, Glasgow, and the late Edward Ellice Macdonald.

The death in action of Lieutenant Charles Gordon Macdonald, following so soon after the tragic death by drowning of his father, our late headmaster, has deeply moved the school. Lieutenant Macdonald was a brilliant pupil, but not on conventional lines.
Born on 7th March 1889, he was marked from early years by the original and independent bent of his mind and by his abhorrence of well-worn grooves. At the University he showed the same independence, and shocked his professors and fellow-students by sitting for honours in English in the third year, a venture that usually spells disaster. Not so in his case, however, as he came out a brilliant first.
The Church, with its old traditions and new opportunities had an irresistible attraction for his mystic and spiritual temperament.
After a brilliant course in the Theological Hall he was appointed in May 1914, as assistant in Hamilton Parish. He was one of the first ministers in the Church to place himself unreservedly in the hands of the military authorities. After a lengthy training in this country, at the monotony of which he sometimes rebelled, he was sent to France. At Festubert on 15th June 1915, while charging at the head of his men, he was mortally wounded. The chaplain writing home said;
"Our battalion was put in the forefront of the attack, and Lieutenant Macdonald was in the foremost company. He was very seriously wounded soon after they made the charge, and must have died almost immediately. The regiment has lost a valued officer, and I a valued friend and assistant."
