The Muriel Sheldon Award 2011

For the second year running Fife writer, Barbara Millar, judged the articles published in the Tay Valley Family Historian throughout the year and chose this year’s winning article which appeared in the May/June issue.

Congratulations to J Marie Bassett for her thorough and utterly absorbing account of the full and fascinating life of Patrick Bell – an inventor, teacher and minister. Her painstaking research covered each and every facet of his life. Marie’s article was also beautifully illustrated, which added so much to the piece.

A warm, affectionate recollection of summers spent with her grandparents in Dundee by Jean Coombs, published in the February edition, took second place, and Barbara’s third choice was the article by George Lewthwaite about local Dundee hero, Walter White, which appeared in the October issue.

Grateful thanks to all our contributors to the journal throughout the year and special thanks to Barbara for agreeing to adjudicate again in this year’s competition.
