Institutionele geschiedenis

In 1915, the Glasgow Athenaeum Commercial College was reconstituted as the Glasgow and West of Scotland Commercial College (Incorporated).

In 1934, the College moved into a new building in Pitt Street, near Charing Cross, designed by James Miller. The College offered a wide range of commercial and professional courses including commercial and secretarial, business administration, accountancy, law, modern languages and social work. In 1944, the College founded the Scottish Hotel School and, in 1946, the Scottish School of Librarianship. In 1950, it established the Glasgow School of Management jointly with the Royal Technical College. Students studied for the associateship and diploma of the College, awards of external bodies, and external degrees of London University. In 1955, the College was renamed the Scottish College of Commerce.

In 1964, the Scottish College of Commerce merged with the Royal College of Science and Technology to form the University of Strathclyde.

Biografie

William Hamilton was born on 16 March 1931 and brought up in Kilwinning, Ayrshire. After leaving school, he worked for R.K. Gemmell as an apprentice gardener at Blairside nursery in Kilwinning. By the 1960s, he was employed as Production Controller at the Hyster Forklift Company in Irvine. While in post, Mr Hamilton enrolled for the Certificate in Administrative Studies course, offered on an evening and day release basis by the Glasgow School of Management Studies, which was a joint venture between the Department of Management Studies at the Scottish College of Commerce and the Department of Industrial Administration at the Royal College of Science and Technology. This two-year course was intended to provide a general introduction to the study of Management, with the first year curriculum consisting of classes on 'Business Law' and 'Economics I', which took place at the Scottish College of Commerce; and 'Introduction to Management Principles' and 'Production Organisation I', held at the Royal College of Science and Technology. The second-year curriculum comprised classes in 'Accounting I' and 'Statistics', both held at the Scottish College of Commerce; and 'Introduction to Human Relations' and 'History of Industry, Science and Technology,' held at the Royal College of Science and Technology. Mr Hamilton subsequently attended a two-week course in Supervisory Management at the Chesters Management Centre, University of Strathclyde, in session 1966-1967. He went on to forge a successful management career in the whisky industry, retiring as Material Manager at William Grant and Sons in Paisley in 1992. He later came out of retirement to serve as Operations Manager for the Alloway Scotch Whisky Company Limited.
