Biographical Sketch

Interest in genealogy and Scottish heritage of many South Plains residents led to discussions on organizing a Scottish heritage group in the mid 1970s and culminated with the formation of the West Texas Scottish Heritage Society in 1981. Monthly meetings served as the setting for members to share in clan history, genealogy methods, traditional games, traditional music, and other activities. The society disbanded after the January 2002 meeting, where they enjoyed the traditional annual celebration of Robert Burn's birthday. An offshoot, a Scottish dance group, continues to meet and perform. Ben and Jean Gunn are long-time residents of West Texas and Lubbock and have strong connections to Texas Tech University. They were members of and held office for the West Texas Scottish Heritage Society. Jean was the last officer to hold newsletter/Historian duties.
