Glasgow City Heritage Trust is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2017, and we will be marking the occasion with a number of special events.
Those of us working to protect and promote Glasgow’s heritage today stand on the shoulders of some true greats that have gone before us, who worked tirelessly to establish the conservation movement we know today. In addition to looking back at our own work, we will be highlighting the work of some of these figures, starting appropriately with the Trust’s Patron – Professor John Hume OBE, BSc ARCST, Hon FRIAS, FSA Scot.
Professor John Hume lives in Glasgow and was instrumental in setting up many local heritage organisations as well as writing major reference books on Glasgow’s Industrial Heritage. We join Prof Hume in conversation with Dr Jeff Sanders, of the Society of Antiquaries Scotland, to look back on his industrious career including positions at the University of Strathclyde as a lecturer in Economic and Industrial History and Historic Scotland, latterly as Chief Inspector of Historic Buildings.
“John’s timely records of Glasgow’s industrial heritage are invaluable and we are proud in counting him our friend and Patron”
