Professor John Beatty
In the spring of 2002, the Saltire Society was approached about the possibility of having a branch in New York City. In the summer, John Beatty visited the Society at their headquarters on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh and spoke with a number of the officials of organisation. It was concluded that the Saltire Society would in fact, like to have a branch in New York and in the fall of the year, several people gathered to form a board of directors.
There are several other events still in the planning stage which we hope will be of interest to many people in the area. These will appear on the "Events" page of the New York Branch official website:
