The Kintyre Antiquarian & Natural History Society and "The Kintyre Magazine"
In the very first,
April 1977-published
, "
Kintyre Magazine
", A. I. B. Stewart, President of
The Kintyre Antiquarian and Natural History Society
, wrote that "In an agewhen scholarship is at a discount and change is regarded by many as synonymous with improvement, it seems to me that it becomes all the more important to look over ourshoulders at the lives and achievements of our ancestors, for only by understanding the past can we prepare for the future".The aim of The Kintyre Antiquarian and Natural History Society's twice-yearly magazine was therefore "to give some permanence to the work done by 'The KintyreAntiquarians' in recording Kintyre's past history and in recording the natural features of Kintyre's beautiful environment".Thanks to Campbeltonian Ian Forshaw, the story recorded in his article "Antiquity and Technology" (Kintyre Magazine No 46, Autumn 1999, pages 28/29), many of the earlymagazine articles, including many by the present magazine editor Angus Martin himself, were put online on'The Kintyre Mag' website between 1997 and 2006 and though, 'forpersonal reasons', Ian Forshaw has added no more material to his website added since the end of February 2006, he has continued to keep 'The Kintyre Mag' website online andhere, given the listings of both the contents of the original paper editions of the magazines AND the listing of the contents of all the articles put online by Ian Forshaw, thismost valuable archive of articles may be easily trawled for subjects of interest.All correspondence regarding matters pertaining to 'The Society' should be addressed to Angus Martin, 13 Saddell Street, Campbeltown, Argyll PA28 6DN and all enquiries aboutsubscriptions and magazine distribution addressed to Mrs Frances Hood, Craiglussa, Peninver, By Campbeltown, Argyll PA28 6QP who, though many magazine editions are now nolonger available, may be able to supply 'back-numbers', some of which may also be available, along with other books of Kintyre interest, from

The Natural History & Antiquarian Society of Mid-Argyll and "The Kist" Magazine
In 1954 The University of Glasgow, the West of Scotland Extra-Mural Committee and the Argyll County Council Education Committee appointed Eric Cregeen, previouslyAssistant Director to the Manx Museum, as Resident Tutor in Adult Education in Argyll to encourage extra-mural studies throughout the county, including the islands.An ethnographer and historian well-versed in using oral history and archives, his work made important contributions to the social history of Argyll. Eric Cregeen, at the heartof the county, in Ardrishaig, began developing adult education by encouraging and helping local groups to create or re-invigorate archaeological and natural history societies,three new 'Natural History and Antiquarian Societies' soon coming into being - Mid-Argyll in 1955 and those on Mull and Islay in 1959.A report in "The Argyllshire Advertiser and Lochfyneside Echo" of 20th April, 1955 informs us that "Those interested in the Antiquities and Natural History of their countrywill be glad to know that, following a well-attended open meeting held in Lochgilphead on 7th ult., a new society has been formed -
The Natural History and AntiquarianSociety of Mid-Argyll
. The Office-bearers are - Hon. President, His Grace The Duke of Argyll; President, Miss Marion Campbell of Kilberry, F.S.A. (Scot); Joint Hon.
Secretaries, E. R. Cregeen, M.A., University of Glasgow and Hawthorn, Ardrishaig; Dr. Macnab, Aros, Lochgilphead and Hon. Treasurer, J. M. Rattray, Bank of Scotland,Lochgilphead. The committee of management is representative and various parts of Mid-Argyll."The objects of the society are to promote interest in the antiquities, folklore, geology and natural history of Mid Argyll. Its activities will include excursions in summer, withexperts as guides and meetings in winter. It is intended, when funds permit, to publish 'transactions', so as to place matters of interest and valuable research on record. Aconstitution has been adopted and excursions planned for this summer to Crarae (garden and excavation of Neolithic grave), Kilmartin antiquities and other places of interest.Member's subscription, 7/6 per annum".The educational aims of the Mid Argyll society were to be apparent from the very beginning, as evidenced by the announcement, in 1956, of a history competition for thoseunder 18 years of age. When the competition details were published in 1957, we can see the concern to promote "living" and oral history.For example, one of the subjects that could be written about was "local crafts and industries" and including in the notes is the following : "If, for example, you choose to dofishing, get information, not only in books, but talk to fishermen in your locality".It was this concern to bring history to life, coupled with Eric Cregeen's knowledge of Creagneash Folk Museum that would later act as some of the catalysts for the founding ofthe
Auchindrain Museum
, which opened in 1975.With the arrival of the 1970's came the the magazine, the Mid Argyll society's "KIST" magazine, which started life at Whitsun 1971.Copies of "The Kist" magazine and other books of Kintyre and local history interest can be obtained from -
