Publication about Scottish Women's Oral History Project

  • GB 249 SOHC 20
  • Pièce
  • c. 2004

The Scottish Women's Oral History Project was undertaken in Stirling, Scotland, between 1987 and 1990. The aim of project was to record the lives of women in Scotland in the first half of the 20th century, including a specific objective to record the experiences of working-class women.

The project was established in December 1986 by the Women’s Committee of Stirling District Council. The impetus for the project was part of a wider promotion of women's interests, as well as a need to address a perceived lack of women's voices in the historical record. Sponsored by the the Manpower Services Commission (MSC), the project set-out to record the personal testimonies of local women, living in the Stirlingshire area of Scotland, about their life in the decades before the Second World War. Based in Spittal Street, Stirling, the project was coordinated by Jayne Stephenson, who, with a team of fellow interviewers, interviewed around 80 local women, between 1987 and 1990.

The testimonies cover all aspects of women’s experiences, from childhood to adulthood, through to the Second World War. The interviews are loosely structured into sections covering childhood, leisure, work, marriage, children, community and social class (the interview questions are based on the model questionnaire devised by Paul Thompson (1978)). The project explicitly aimed to cover a representative sample of female occupations, and the material contains recollections of a wide variety of occupational experience - including textile workers, waitresses and hotel staff, domestic servants, factory workers, teachers, nurses.

The publication contains written transcripts of 77 interviews (anonymised), together with an index and an introduction by Callum Brown.

Temporally, the material relates to women born in Scotland between 1894 and 1926, and the interviews cover the period up to World War II.

Geographically, the material covers the Stirlingshire and 'central belt' area of lowland Scotland, including extensive material on life in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The Committee took possession of a new, purpose-built training college at Jordanhill in December 1919, and students were taught there from September 1921. The photograph is pasted onto a cream cardboard mount, on the bottom-right corner of which is embossed 'Turnbull & Mainds, 10 Jamaica Street, Glasgow'.

Autograph book

  • GB 249 JCE/22/2/13
  • Pièce
  • 1916 - 1920

Autograph book of Louisa Jessie Fletcher, student at the Glasgow Provincial Training College from 1914-1916, and James Maxwell Dewar Teape, Sub-Lieutenant, Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve. The book contains autographs, sketches and verses that are individually dated from 1916-1920. It appears to have passed from Louisa's possession into James's possession around the second half of 1916. The earlier sketches and signatures are those of Louisa's fellow College students and staff, and the later ones are those of James's fellow servicemen. The nature of the relationship between Louisa and James is not known, but he was not a student of the College. He worked as a Gas Department Clerk after the First World War and married a Glasgow schoolteacher, Isabella Breckenridge Falconer, in 1920.
