Historylinks Year: 1955
First of four newspaper clippings from the Northern Times recording, with monochrome photograph, the Viscount Kilmuir's Freedom of Dornoch ceremony on 1955 April 15th. Viscount Kilmuir was the second Lord Chancellor to be made a Freeman, the previous one being Viscount Jewitt in 1946. Viscount Kilmuir received the Freedom in recognition of his services to the State, his position as Lord Chancellor, his pre-eminence in the adminstration of the laws of the country, the sympathetic interest shown by him in the great social problems of the day and his family ties with Dornoch and the parish.
The photograph shows left to right Viscount Kilmuir with his raised hand, Rev. William MacLeod; William Wright Town Clerk.
