Fra Newbery is best known as the head master and director of Glasgow School of Art where during a period of some 32 years, from 1885 to 1918, he raised what was a moderately successful British institution into one with an international reputation. During the 1890’s, Newbery had nurtured a group of highly innovative designers. The group, one of whose members was Charles Rennie Mackintosh, developed the progressive Glasgow style.
