(New York, NY)  - The Saint Andrew’s Society of the State of New York elected Harlan Douglas Whatley to the position of Historian of the Society at a meeting of the Officers and Board of Managers on May 30th, 2002.  The announcement was made official that evening at the Society’s semi-annual general meeting by former Historian and Vice-President, Duncan A. Bruce, at the Society’s Manhattan offices.  Mr. Bruce and Mr. Whatley will work together on a new edition of the Society’s history which is scheduled for release in 2006, the 250th anniversary of the Society, which is New York’s oldest charity.

Mr. Whatley’s writing has been published in An Cuimean: the Newsletter of Clan Cumming Society, An t-Albannach: the Newsletter of the New York Caledonian Club, Dispatch: the Journal of the Scottish Military Historical Society, U.S. Scots and the soon to be released, Encyclopedia of New York State.  He is currently in post-production on a historical documentary, The Tartan Apple: the Scots in New York City

“We are thrilled to have Harlan D. Whatley serving in the capacity of Historian of the Society,” said President, John Mauk Hilliard.  “We look forward to his contributions.” 

Founded in 1756 in the City of New York by Scottish immigrants, the Saint Andrew’s Society of the State of New York is the oldest charity in New York.  The Society’s primary purpose is for “…the relief of natives of Scotland and their descendants who may be in want or distress…”. To this day the Society continues this laudable tradition by giving emergency aid and stipendiary assistance to needy Scots and their descendants.  The Society, a 501-(c)(3) entity, welcomes the support of individuals and organizations that share its fervor for these charitable activities.
