Est. 1858

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - MEMORY LANE -

The bat­tle to save Glas­gow Univer­sity’s place at the Crich­ton was won.

The Scot­tish Ex­ec­u­tive bowed to pub­lic pres­sure af­ter a seven-month cam­paign backed by the Stan­dard and drafted in a £1.5 mil­lion res­cue pack­age.

The move meant that the univer­sity’s fu­ture in Dum­fries was se­cured. And plans were in place for an ex­pan­sion at the Crich­ton cam­pus in what was her­alded as a“new era”. Crich­ton cam­pus boss Ted Cowan, pro­claimed it as an“out­stand­ing vic­tory.”
