1. The first thing to report is that the Drinks Party held on 4th July at the Heinz Gallery, Portman Square was a great success. There was a sizeable number of people there and the talk given by Dr. Neil Jackson was both interesting and informative. Freda Levson tried to explain the close ties between the Troups and the MacDonalds, but some of us got lost in the genealogy. It is easiest to think of F.W. Troup whom the exhibition at the Heinz Gallery was honouring, as a king of “nephew” of MacDonalds. Troup was a distinguished architect in his own day, designing among other buildings, “Howglen” in Gladstone Road, Huntly.
