Walter Scott Biographer John Buchan Born

The 1st Lord Tweedsmuir, John Buchan, was born on August 26, 1875.  Buchan's contributions to Walter Scott study have been noted in a post on his date of death.  Buchan was born in Perth, Scotland, and included much of Scotland in his works.  In particular, the Upper Tweed Valley/Borderlands that inspired Sir Walter Scott. 

The John Buchan society site is worth a visit, at: http://www.johnbuchansociety.co.uk/index.html.
