Re: St Clairs of the Isles--Locations
Good work on putting this on the list!
Those books show up in the most amazing places.
A few months ago, I accompanied Malcolm Caithness to a meeting with Lister
Sinclair here in Toronto. Those who are not Canadian will not know that
Lister is a broadcaster and has been one in Canada since the late 1940's.
He has a couple of PhD.'s, is knowledgeable about practically anything and
is known by more Canadians than practically any other public personage. He
brought with him his copy of St. Clair of the Isles and to whom do you think
it originally belonged? Alexander MacLean Sinclair of Goshen Nova Scotia,
and author of the Sinclairs of Rosslyn, Caithness and Goshen (1901) as well
as the definitive work on the MacLeans. His signature was in the front
cover and now so is Malcolm's. Not a big story just a nice one.
