It is with sadness that we note the death of Alastair Reid (above, centre) — peripatetic poet, translator, essayist and scholar. Alastair was born in Galloway in 1926, and died on 21 September 2014 in Manhattan, aged 88. As a tribute we are posting the Oration given by Professor Anne Anderson, Vice Principal and Head of College of Social Sciences, when he received the Honorary Degree (Doctor of Letters) of the University of Glasgow, at the Dumfries Campus graduation ceremony in 2011.
