Bee ex­pert dies

The death has oc­curred at the Cot­tage Hospi­tal, Camp­bel­town, of Mr John Lit­tle MacGre­gor, of ‘Kil­do­nan’, by Camp­bel­town, who was Bee Ad­vi­sory Of­fi­cer for the County of Ar­gyll. Mr MacGre­gor, who was 52, was the youngest son of the late Mr and Mrs Wil­liam MacGre­gor, 8 Wind­law Rd, Car­munnock, Glas­gow. A col­league of Mr MacGre­gor’s writes: ‘It is with deep re­gret that we learn of the death of John L. MacGre­gor. ‘He was a stu­dent of Hor­ti­cul­ture and Bee­keep­ing at the West of Scot­land Agri­cul­tural Col­lege from 1945 to 1948 when he was awarded his Di­ploma. ‘He joined the staff of the Bee Depart­ment in 1951 as as­sis­tant to the late Mr James Struthers. He was trans­ferred to the Ad­vi­sory Staff of the Col­lege in 1954 and took over the du­ties of Bee Ad­vi­sory Of­fi­cer for the County of Ar­gyll. ‘His pass­ing is a great loss to the beekeepers of Ar­gyll where he was the guide and ex­pert in all mat­ters rel­a­tive to his call­ing.’
