Note: Louise Annand was a Scottish painter and film-maker, she graduated from Glasgow University in 1937 with Honours in English Literature whilst simultaneously pursuing her love of art and drawing with night classes in art. She was a major contributor to Scottish documentary and was an influential female filmmaker in a field that was dominated mostly by males. She mingled with such luminaries as J D Fergusson and Margaret Morris, eventually becoming president of the JD Fergusson Foundation. Despite her dual existence as artist and teacher, Miss Annand found time to act as a member of the business committee of the University of Glasgow and as chairman of the Glasgow Graduates Association. She served on the Fine Art Commission for Scotland and as president both of the Society of Scottish Women Artists (now VAS) and of the Glasgow Society of Women Artists. Her role as educator was marked with the award of the MBE in 1980, while Glasgow University recognised the artist with an honorary doctorate in 1997. Her book about J D Fergusson (1939 – 61) was published in 2003, while a retrospective exhibition of her painting was held at the Lillie Gallery, Milngavie in 2004
