1940s Medal Winners

1940s medalsJimmy MacGregor collects his art competition medal
Glasgow Museums has been running its annual Young Person's Art Competition for over 100 years.
We recently discovered a box of over 60 unclaimed competition medals from the 1940s, and are now trying to reunite them with their rightful owners.
Glasgow writer and singer Jimmy Macgregor (pictured) was a winner in 1943 but never collected his medal. Now he has come to claim it, almost 60 years later, and to help us launch our search.
All of the medals are inscribed with the winners’ names and most of their boxes give the year they were won, and the name of the schools the winner was attending at the time.
Below is the full list of winners, with all the information we have about them. If you believe that you or a family member won one of these medals contact Anne Wallace on 0141 276 9507 or e mail
