International Fellowship

We have Fellows all around the globe.

Fellows value the Society as a trustworthy source of information on Scotland’s history and enjoy the connection with a long standing learned organisation. Fellows can keep abreast with new research findings and support the Society’s advocacy work to protect Scotland’s historic and archaeological environment.

Fellows in Australia and North American have begun to plan annual events where Fellows can meet and share their interest and knowledge of Scotland’s past.

In 2015, and in early 2017, our President Dr David Caldwell met with Fellows in Australia while travelling to visit family, and commented “Our International Fellows make a valuable contribution to the Society. It was a huge pleasure to meet Fellows and share our vision for the Society”.

Thank you to Fellows Dr James Donaldson FSA Scot and Hope Vere Anderson FSA Scot for their help and voluntary support as Honorary Secretaries of the Society in Australia and America, respectively.


In 2014 Dr James Donaldson hosted the first meeting of Australian Fellows in Melbourne, again in 2015, followed by the third Fellows’ Dinner in Sydney last April. Similarly, Hope Vere Anderson hosted the first Fellows’ Dinner in America, which took place in Atlanta in 2016.

James and Hope have organised the following events this year:

– The fourth annual Fellows’ Dinner of the Society in Australia will take place in Melbourne on Friday 7 April, commencing at 6.30 pm with a guest speaker, followed by dinner at 7.30 pm.

– The second annual Fellows’ Dinner of the Society in America will take place in Atlanta on Saturday 21 October, commencing at 7pm with guest speaker and dinner.

Both Honorary Secretaries would be pleased to hear from Fellows who would like to reserve a place at one of this year’s Fellows’ Dinners, as well as hearing from you on other Society network matters and interests in Scotland’s past.
