  1. Fascinating stuff, Kenneth! Who was the Duchess of Athol, though, and why did she open the building? Also, have we any idea which bit of the building Robert W-W and his team occupied? Also, again, as you may know, there was a big fight before Law got into the Scrym, as the Deputy Principal of the day (can’t remember his name) wanted to put the Rep in there. I wrote a piece about it in Contact.

    Keep it up!
