Adam Smith Decoration
This Adam Smith decoration is made especially for the University by St Nicolas.
Adam Smith described his time at the University of Glasgow as 'By far the most useful... and by the far the happiest and most honourable period of my life.' He attended as a student, became a professor of logic and moral philosophy and served as University Rector until the year before his death in 1790. This decoration shows him clutching his most famous book 'The Wealth of Nations'.
