Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (B)
Baikie, Margaret

The "Queen For the Day" at the World's Fair in 1933 was a sixteen year old Scottish lassie whose parents were from the Highlands of Scotland. The newspaper in Stromness, Scotland reported: "Sentiment runs deep in the heart of the Scots, and it will not be thought strange that the one Highlander who attracted more attention than anyone else was the sweet, modest sixteen-year-old Margaret Baikie" . Margaret also was an accomplished piper and owns hundreds of dancing medals and trophies. She is now Mrs. Carl Johnson and still active in Scottish events as a life member of the Illinois Saint Andrew Society. (1998)
