Robert Burns Lives!
The Burns Chronicle

Edited by Frank R. Shaw, FSA Scot, Dawsonville, GA, USA

On the cover of the current issue of The Burns Chronicle (Winter 2010) are several pictures which have been taken over the years of the Burns Cottage of Atlanta. With permission from Bill Dawson, editor of the Chronicle, I am attaching a photo of that cover and two articles contained therein for our readers. The cottage is a special place to say the least. Just last night Susan and I attended our monthly meeting of the Burns Club at the cottage and heard Thorne Winter, M.D. and former president of the Burns Club of Atlanta, speak on “Robert Burns, His Illness and Cause of Death; Medicine in Scotland in the 18th Century”. This Harvard Medical School graduate gave an inspiring message and brought the audience up to date on some of the theories regarding the death of Burns. Maybe one day Thorne will allow his speech to be published on Robert Burns Lives!.

I am most appreciative to Bill Dawson and the Robert Burns World Federation for all they have done to promote the story of Burns and the impact he has made on the world over the past 251 years. A personal thanks to Bill for the excellent job he has done since becoming editor of the Chronicle. It, too, is a special publication under his leadership. (FRS: 3-3-2011)
