Though some might eschew the idea that 'the present is a product of the past', thereare more than as many others who would seek out that past in the pages of thewonderful little magazines produced by our local history groups.
A. I. B. Stewart
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 age when scholarship is at a discount and change is regarded by many assynonymous with improvement, it seems to me that it becomes all the moreimportant to look over our shoulders at the lives and achievements of our ancestors,for only by understanding the past can we prepare for the future".An article in the magazine's first issue, by Hector L. MacKenzie, tells us how, "On14th June, 1921, the then Macdonald of Largie and Sheriff J. MacMaster Campbellissued a circular letter convening a meeting in The Argyll Arms Hotel,Campbeltown, on 21st June, relative to the proposed formation of a society for thestudy of the Archaeology, History and Antiquities of Kintyre and the preservationof the older records of the district.The aim of The Kintyre Antiquarian and Natural History Society's twice-yearlymagazine was therefore "to give some permanence to the work done by 'TheKintyre Antiquarians' in recording Kintyre's past history and in recording the naturalfeatures of Kintyre's beautiful environment".Though the present editor of The Society's magazine, Angus Martin, is ever-concerned about protecting the copyright in his own and other authors workspublished in the magazine,
many of the earlymagazine articles, includingmany by the present magazine editor Angus Martin himself, were put onlineon 'The Kintyre Mag' website at http://www.kintyremag.co.uk/ 
between1997 and 2006
, by Campbeltonian Ian Forshaw, the story recorded in his article"Antiquity and Technology" (Kintyre Magazine No 46, Autumn 1999, pages28/29) and though, 'for personal reasons', Ian Forshaw has added no morematerial to his website added since the end of February 2006, he has continued tokeep
'The Kintyre Mag' website online at http://www.kintyremag.co.uk/ 
and the valuable archive of articles easily trawled given the contents indexes here.When, in 2006, Argyll and Bute Council decided to house Campbeltown's PublicLibrary in a new leisure complex, turning the former library building into counciloffices, 'The Society' had to transfer its library and archives to temporaryaccommodation in Campbeltown's Town Hall and at that point
The Society'smagazine and other collections then became inaccessible to researchers otherthan The Society's Office-Bearers
- Angus Martin, in his editorial notes to theSpring 2008 No 63 issue of 'The Kintyre Magazine', reports there that "Despiterepeated representations by letter and telephone, Argyll and Bute Council has failedto offer us alternative accommodation since our eviction in 2006 from 'The BurnetBuilding' after almost 79 years there. Our collection, less the books which weredeemed surplus to requirements and sold, continues to be piled against a wall of a roomin The Town Hall, inaccessible to researchers and vulnerable to deterioration" - Allcorrespondence regarding matters pertaining to 'The Society' should be addressed toAngus Martin, 13 Saddell Street, Campbeltown, Argyll PA28 6DN and all enquiriesabout subscriptions and magazine distribution addressed to Mrs Frances Hood,Craiglussa, Peninver, By Campbeltown, Argyll PA28 6QP who, though manymagazine editions are now no longer available, may be able to supply 'back-numbers',some of which may also be available, along with other books of Kintyre interest, from
