Introduction

Introduction SIR WILLIAM KERR FRASER purpose of the Society's 1995 Conference was to bring together its members, with interested parties outside the Society, to hear a report of Rebecca Bailey's work on the Scottish Survey of Architectural Practices (ssap) during the last three and a half years, and to signal the publication of the final report Scottish Architects' Papers: A Source Book. As Principal of the University of Glasgow, I was well aware of Rebecca Bailey's splendid work, carried out under the umbrella of the Business Records Centre at the University. Now, as Chairman of the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland, I am very conscious of its responsibility for maintaining the National Monuments Record of Scotland, which, from its foundation in 1941, has been identifying and preserving collections of Scottish architects' papers. The ssap was born because of the fears of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland that recession was putting the survival of both historic and recent collections of architects' papers at risk. A prime part of Rebecca Bailey's task has been to quantify the volume of these papers so that the Scottish authorities, both local and national, can take effective action http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architectural Heritage Edinburgh University Press

Abstract

SIR WILLIAM KERR FRASER purpose of the Society's 1995 Conference was to bring together its members, with interested parties outside the Society, to hear a report of Rebecca Bailey's work on the Scottish Survey of Architectural Practices (ssap) during the last three and a half years, and to signal the publication of the final report Scottish Architects' Papers: A Source Book. As Principal of the University of Glasgow, I was well aware of Rebecca Bailey's splendid work, carried out under the umbrella of the Business Records Centre at the University. Now, as Chairman of the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland, I am very conscious of its responsibility for maintaining the National Monuments Record of Scotland, which, from its foundation in 1941, has been identifying and preserving collections of Scottish architects' papers. The ssap was born because of the fears of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland that recession was putting the survival of both historic and recent collections of architects' papers at risk. A prime part of Rebecca Bailey's task has been to quantify the volume of these papers so that the Scottish authorities, both local and national, can take effective action
