Poverty, health, diet and education in Glasgow: from domestic science to the allied health professions, 1875-1993


  • Glasgow Caledonian University

Project summary

The aim of this project is to sort, catalogue and preserve three archives whose origins lie in domestic science education. The collections are the records of the Glasgow School of Cookery (1875-1908), the West End School of Cookery (1878-1908), and the Glasgow and West of Scotland College of Domestic Science (1908-1975) which became the Queen’s College, Glasgow (1975-1993). The archives document the development of food, nutrition, diet and health education over 118 years.
