Dates of existence
The trustees were appointed under the terms of John Anderson's will, dated 7 May 1795. Under the 1877 Anderson's College (Glasgow) Act, they were made a body corporate, and had their powers and duties remodelled and defined.
The trustees were responsible for the whole management and administration of the institution and were vested with the power to enact or ordain bye-laws, rules and regulations for the better governing and promoting the purposes of the institution.
