Hackston, David A name of considerable celebrity in the annals of Scotland, from its
connexion with the events of 1679-80, and from its pre-eminence in some of
the most remarkable transactions of that stormy period.
Douglas A career officer and one of the most influential characters in World War I.
Henderson, Alexander One of the most eminent of the many eminent men whose names are interwoven
with the annals of Scotland at probably the most interesting period of her
history, (the middle of the17th century.)
Hogg, James One
of the greatest literary talents to come out of Scotland, more prolific a
poet than Burns and arguably a more powerful teller of tales than Scott, yet
Hoggs outspoken manner and quaint rustic image as the Ettrick Shepherd
kept him ultimately from the accolade he deserved.
Hutton, James Born 1726. Father of modern Geology. His theory of Uniformitarianism was the basis
of the explanation of the geological history of the earth, which had in his words "no
vestige of a beginning, no concept of an end".
