Dates of existence
David Stow, a wealthy merchant in Glasgow, was one of the founders of the Glasgow Infant School in 1828 and the Normal Seminary in 1837. A noted educationist, he propounded his views in a series of books, in particular 'The training system', which was published in many editions and sold throughout the world, and 'Granny and Leezy'.
Stow was an adherent of the Free Church of Scotland after the Disruption of the Church of Scotland in 1843, and remained associated with the Glasgow Free Church Training College as governor and teacher from 1845 until his death in 1864.
