Glasgow Western Literary Union


There is little currently known about this union, which appears to have been a debating society. The only information we have comes from the minute book of the Kelvinside Literary Association, which discusses a Union circular that was received by the society in October 1878 apparently requesting the group to join. A motion was then proposed and seconded in its favour.
