Representatives of the Incorporated Trades again attended the graduation ceremonies of the University of Aberdeen. Our links, which hark back to the 1500’s, continue and reinforce the link with our first Patron and Principal of Kings College, Rev Dr William Guild.
This year’s Ceremonies were attended by Deacon Convener Sandy McKinnon, Master of Trades Hospital George Esson, Late Deacon Convener David N Parkinson and Deacon of the Wrights & Coopers Alan Steele.
Congratulations to all the students that graduated, but especially to Emma Paterson who graduated on Thursday morning and was involved as part of her Curatorship Studies in assisting the Trades with research into our collection of historic ceremonial chairs.
