Would Burns have made a good Vet? – Colin Hunter McQueen
At the recent library night (organised by our intrepid Hon. Librarian), Gordon Johnstone introduced Colin Hunter McQueen from Glasgow who presented to the club an impressive display of Burns related letters, relics and artefacts from his own private collection. Reading from a thesis by scholar Prof Sharpe, he gave a lecture on Burns’ veterinary skills which gave positive credence to the question whether Burns could have pursued a career as a Vet. A most enjoyable lecture from a very knowledgeable gentleman and avid Burnsian.
