"Robert Gordon's Legacy" is the story of Robert Gordon and his Hospital, or charity school, and College. Robert Gordon was determined to improve the educational provision of his age and this book explains the motivation which inspired him to leave his considerable fortune to benefit member of the burgess class who had fallen on hard times. It traces not only how, over the past two-and-a-half century, his Legacy has benefited the people of Aberdeen and beyond, but also the complex relationships between the School and the Technical College and its succesor, the Robert Gordon University.
