-Electrical Association for Women Summer School of Electrical Housecraft, Glasgow

The Electrical Association for Women (EAW) was founded in London in 1924 with the aim of helping women to adopt electric power in the household. The College had a close relationship with the EAW, especially in the early days of electricity in the kitchen and Diploma students had to take a course covering the work of the EAW Certificate examinations. The third EAW summer school was held in the College from 26 to 31 August 1937. On November 1986 a special lunch was held for EAW Members in the College’s Hotel Restaurant when the Association was discontinued.
