Charlie Mac

I learned yesterday of the recent death of Charles MacGregor, of Longniddry. In the nine years I spent working in what was then called the Scottish Information Office, Charlie Mac was its director, and as such played a significant influence on my life. I’ve just read Gordon Casely’s generous obituary in today’s Herald newspaper. It told much that I’d never known about the man, and brought back some memories, while expressing a couple of sentinents that I see rather differently. Charles was probably better to  know as a friend than as a colleague, and I’m pleased that I had that opportunity once I left SIO. I’m pleased also that he enjoyed so many years in retirement, surrounded by three generations at the end. My condolences to them all and with those the following: I will always remember him, with gratitude, as the man who changed my life by giving me the opportunity to move to East Lothian, where my family and I remain to this day.
