Fuller Collection was acquired from Professor John Fuller for celebrating the Institute’s 50th anniversary in 1995. John Fuller was the first professor of Hotel Management at Strathclyde University, Glasgow. At the time he was the only such professor at a British university. Fuller came to Glasgow in 1959 as director of the Scottish Hotel School. William Angliss teaching staff, Graham Dodgshun, has been taught by Professor Fuller in England and it was this link which led to the possibility of obtaining the collection. The collection consists of over 530 books on wine, distilling, brewing, viticulture, and technological aspects of wine production, spirits, and other drinks. Many of the books date back to the 18th and 19th centuries; the oldest published in 1736.
