The Gilmorehill Story update (12/3/15)

The Gilmorehill Story project has been busy updating the University Story website with new building entries. In honour of International Women’s Day, the University Archives put together a series of blogs discussing women and the University: A history of educating women, A history of women on campus, and A history of pioneering graduates. A history of women on campus focusses on the story of the women associated with the University’s buildings and as such a number of entries were updated and uploaded including: Queen Margaret College and the Anatomy Building that was completed in 1895 (it may have been designed by Charles Rennie Macintosh!), Queen Margaret Hall and its associated buildings from 1894 to the present (Lilybank House, Robertson House, Melville House, Galloway House, and Southpark House), and Queen Margaret Union and its different locations since its foundation in 1890 (particularly the John McIntyre Building and its current location on University Gardens).

The Gilmorehill Story also created a new entry for the brilliantly named Abbot’s Kitchen after receiving an enquiry about organic chemistry student Masataka Taketsuru.
