Excerpt on Sir Donald Walter Cameron, K.T., XXV Chief of Clan Cameron
from Chronicles of Oklahoma
March, 1933

The Cameron Clan has been prominent for centuries in the Highlands of Scotland and carry on to this day the organization and customs of the Clan.  The Scotch people have an annual celebration, both in Scotland and in America, in accordance with the old custom, and persons of Scotch descent from all sections of the country assemble for the celebration.  These celebrations are carried on in this country through the Scottish Society of America.  In October, 1925, the Laird of Lochiel, Donald Walter Cameron, Chief of the Clan Cameron in Scotland, was the honored guest of the Society at its annual celebration at Red Springs, N. C., at which former Governor and United States Senator Cameron Morrison, of North Carolina, President of the Scottish Society of America, together with Governor Thomas G. McLeod, of South Carolina, were present and delivered addresses of welcome to the distinguished guests.  The Laird of Lochiel came to America as the result of a special invitation extended to him by the Society, bringing with him his wife, Lady Hermoine.

Editor's Notes:  Excerpted from a profile on Reverend Evan Dhu Cameron, the founder and namesake of Oklahoma's Cameron University.  This trip to North Carolina is also recorded to have taken place in 1923, immediately following a visit to Canada by Lochiel.
