Commander for the Learned Kindred of Currie

At the Royal Scots Club in Edinburgh, the Lord Lyon presented Dr Robert Currie with his Commission as Commander of the Name of Currie. The gathering included the Lord Provost of Glasgow, the US Consul, several Clan Chiefs and a great gathering of Curries. Clare McCrory was the artist. Bob is our newest member of the Society and he and his wife Suzanne treated us to a wonderful evening of hospitality and music. The music was provided by some of the beneficiaries of Clan Currie Foundation's scholarships over the years.

Also in attendance was a substantial number of members of the HSS, led by the Chairman, Beverly Bergman, kindly invited by Commander Currie, to whom we are very grateful. The association with music is one of the most ancient attributes of the Learned Kindred of Currie and the Society continues its generous support of Scottish music to this day.
