Autograph album attributed to Sarah M. McLellan

  • GB 249 CSTC/7/13
  • Stuk
  • 1903 - 1917

Autograph album containing signatures, verses, and sketches in pen, ink and watercolour. Miniature black and white photographs of several of the contributors are pasted on to the pages. Much of the content dates from 1905, with the latest contribution dating from 1917. Most of the contributors were trainee teachers at the Glasgow Church of Scotland Training College (CSTC), also known as Dundas Vale Training College, and the first page contains an inscription signed by the owner's mother, Annie B. McLellan, dated 18 January 1905. This evidence suggests that the album originally belonged to Sarah M. McLellan, who trained at the CSTC from 1903-1905.

Laurie Flynn papers on the asbestos industry

  • GB 249 FLYNN
  • Collectie
  • 1893 - 2005

Laurie Flynn's papers on the asbestos industry span the period 1893-2005 and contain information primarily on the occupational health hazards posed by asbestos. This interest is centred on the activities of Cape Asbestos Company Ltd (and all corresponding names including shell entities) as well as the company's overseas subsidiaries.

There are 4 main series:

  • mining in South Africa, 1938-2005
  • asbestos litigation in North America, 1934-2005
  • asbestos in the UK, 1953-2005
  • Cape Asbestos corporate papers, 1893-2000

The focus of the collection is on employer negligence concerning health and safety, as argued in compensation lawsuits brought against the company and its subsidiaries.

Access to the wealth of business and legal papers brought to light primarily through lawsuits led Flynn to question whether multinational enterprises are as progressive as some commentators (notably business historians) have made out. The depositions, affidavits and court exhibits contained in this collection illuminate the role played by corporations and their representatives (in particular company medics and corporate lawyers) in suppressing scientific evidence concerning the risks of asbestos exposure. The Flynn papers also illustrate the lengths to which Cape Asbestos’ legal advisers went to create complex and confusing company structures in order to distance the parent company from liability ("corporate veil").

The collection includes some of Flynn’s notebooks and other background research materials for journalistic projects (among them extensive interviews with South African miners and Glasgow laggers), scripts and transcripts for documentaries, press cuttings, scientific literature, and correspondence with health and safety experts, medical specialists, environmental consultants, tort lawyers and asbestos ban campaigners.

In addition to documenting Flynn’s sustained interest in the workings of multinational asbestos enterprise, the collection also includes a little material relating to gold and diamond mining and the medical impact of atomic testing.
