University of Guelph Library
Fall Colloquium September 2016


I attended this event which was celebrating 30 years of the Scottish Studies Foundation and the work they have done to help establish a Chair of Scottish Studies at the University of Guelph and the building of the library.

I took some pictures and also took a video of two talks.  I would have done more but my memory card was full by the time I tried to video a final talk.

The event was well attended


At the forefront of this picture is David Hunter, the current President of the Scottish Studies Foundation


And that's me sitting beside David Hunter in the front row

And thanks to Doug Ross, Board member of the Scottish Studies Foundation for sending in some pictures


Graeme Morton, the first Chair of Scottish Studies, who is now at Dundee University in Scotland.

And here are the videos...

This is where my Batteries ran out so just a wee snippet.

Of course I did have a spare set of batteries so did a quick replacement but then sad to say I also ended up with the message "memory card full" so the final wee snippet of David Hunters talk.
