Glasgow
By the British Medical Association (1922)


Preface

THIS Book of Glasgow is not intended to be in any sense a Guide Book. The Printing and Publishing Committee in offering it to the members of the British Medical Association have had before them the desire to present simply an impression of the Second City of the Empire.

The articles dealing with the University and the Medical Institutions give more extensive information than the term impression usually implies. These may be regarded as continuing and bringing up to date the story (of the Medical Institutions of Glasgow) written for the Meeting of the Association in Glasgow in 1888.

The other articles have been written by a group of distinguished journalists and literary authorities familiar with their special subjects.

The Committee lake this opportunity of thanking most heartily all the authors of the articles. The Committee ore indebted for the loan of blocks and photographs to the Art Galleries Committee of the Corporation of Glasgow, Messrs. T. & R. Annan, the Royal Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons, the Directors of the Royal Technical College, the Caledonian Railway Company, and the Editor of the British Medical Journal, It is to Mr. R, J. MacLennan that their thanks are especially due for his unsparing energy and helpful advice in compiling the Book.

They are also deeply indebted to their publishers for their valuable help in the production of the Book.

WM. SNODGRASS,
Chairman of the Printing and Publishing Committee.
