Jimmy Reid 1932-2010

My former employer LTS, under instructions from Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond, has just published the address made by Jimmy Reid when he was elected as Rector of Glasgow University in 1972.

The address on the subject of ‘Alienation’ is an impassioned plea for a more humane society

The speech, described at the time by the New York Times as  “the greatest speech since President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address” is today an essential resource for the Scottish History curriculum.
