The next speaker in the Glengarry Historical Society’s Speakers Series is David Anderson, who will be giving a presentation entitled “Dunvegan Disruption: The Rev John Mackechnie, country minister and scholar of the Gaelic.”

Here is a description of the presentation from the GHS: “In the early 1970s, there was a sharp divide over Mr. Mackechnie’s pastorship at the Kenyon Presbyterian Church and his scholarly credentials. David Anderson will show extracts from the CBC documentary followed by the community, literary and scholarly framework surrounding it.”

The presentation will happen on Thursday, April 13, at 7:30 p.m. at the  DRA Hall in Dunvegan. The cost is $5 for members of the historical society, and $10 for non-members. For more information, email [email protected] or visit
