SaulBro OBIT: Hamish Henderson (1919-2002) (39) RE: OBIT: Hamish Henderson 17 Mar 02


Spent many happy hours at the bar at Sandy Bell's Pub in Edinburgh, where Hamish "held forth". I well remember my lesson on the distinction between "P" and "Q" Celtic languages. Would occasionally visit his office. My most vivid memory is when Margaret Bennett took me with her to her office at the School of Scottish Studies late one night to retrieve something she had forgotten. There was Hamish in his tweed coat, book in his lap, sleeping soundly in the library chair, with his trusty dog keeping watch.

Cheers, Captain...RIP.
