"UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW / QUEEN MARGARET COLLEGE / STUDENTS UNION HALL / SKETCH PLANS."; other notes and measurements DES Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh architectural practice, Glasgow Queen Margaret Medical College was designed in 1894 for the University of Glasgow. This institution is thought to have been the first school of medicine for women in Britain and was a Honeyman, Kepie & Mackintosh commission. Mackintosh's authorship of the original building has been debated, however the authenticity of the perspective, which was published in 'The British Architect' in January 1996, is unquestionably his. 'The British Architect', described the building as 'an excellent structure, treated with boldness, simplicity and originality in the details.'(1896, (45) p.22)
Later work was done for a separate Students' Union Hall.
