WHO do you think is the greatest Glaswegian of all time?

The summer we are showcasing the top 50 men and woman who have put the city on the map. Once they have all been revealed, we will be holding a public vote to find the winner. Today we feature a suffragette who campaigned for fairer rents for families during the first world war and an award-winning TV entertainer and impressionist who created the famous Parliamo Glasgow sketches.

Agnes Dollan

SHE went to jail for campaigning for fairer rents for Glasgow families during the first world war and helped secure the vote for British women.

Pacifist, feminist and suffragette, Springburn-born Agnes Dolan (1887-1966) was also the first female to stand for election with the city council.

She left school at 11 to work in a factory before taking a job as a telephone operator for the Post Office.

It was here that she helped set up a trade union for female workers and campaigned for an organisation that was fighting to secure the vote for women.

She met Patrick Dollan, a journalist and member of the Independent Labour Party, via the Clarion Scouts and they were married on September 20 1912.

Agnes became politically active during the Red Clydeside period of Glasgow’s history as an organiser of the 1915 Glasgow Rent Strikes alongside Mary Barbour and Helen Crawfurd.

She was jailed briefly in 1917 for protesting about high rents.

After joining the Independent Labour Party around 1915, Dollan became the first female Labour candidate to stand for election to Glasgow City Council in January 1919 and on December 13, 1921, she was elected as councillor for Springburn.

She held the position until 1928.

Her husband Patrick served as Lord Provost of Glasgow from 1938 to 1941 however when she attended events with him Agnes is said to have retained her own identity.

Harry McShane wrote in his autobiography, “Pat Dollan’s wife was very active and, I always thought, better than he was; I’m convinced he killed her activity.”

She was awarded an MBE in George VI’s Birthday Honours list of 1946 for her war efforts as the centre organiser in Glasgow for the Women’s Voluntary Services.

Stanley Baxter

It was once said he had the best legs in showbiz which is not bad going considering he was a 50something male at the time.

The actor/writer/entertainer took Glasgow patter to a whole new audience and played the Queen long before Helen Mirren got in on the act.

And at one point no Christmas TV line up was complete without a Stanley Baxter special.

Born in Glasgow in 1924, Stanley is the son of an insurance manager and was educated at Hillhead High School, and schooled for the stage by his mother. He began his career as a child actor in the Scottish edition of the BBC's Children's Hour. He developed his performing skills further during his national service with the Combined Services Entertainment unit, working alongside comedy actor Kenneth Williams, film director John Schlesinger and dramatist Peter Nichols, who used the experience as the basis for his play Privates on Parade.

After the war Baxter returned to Glasgow taking to the stage for three years at Glasgow’s Citizens' Theatre. Following success on the radio with Jimmy Logan, Howard & Wyndham Ltd invited him to star in pantomime at the Theatre Royal in Glasgow followed by the Half Past Eight Shows, and their successors the Five Past Eight Shows at Glasgow's Alhambra Theatre. He moved to London to work in television in 1959. In 1969 he performed in the original production of Joe Orton's then controversial farce What the Butler Saw at the Queen's Theatre in the West End with Sir Ralph Richardson, Coral Browne and Hayward Morse.

Stanley remained a great favourite on the Scottish pantomime circuit, especially at the King's Theatre, Glasgow.

In a recent interview Stanley revealed how he was delighted to be working on radio, but said he won’t appear on television.

“I don’t want to play an old fart,” he says, grinning; “That’s the beauty of radio. No one can see what you look like.”

Nor does he consider himself a Scottish comedy star.

“I didn’t want to be a ‘Scotch’ comedian. I wanted not to be labelled, not to be identified.”
