  • Short Summary

    The installation of Compton Mackenzie as Lord Rector of Glasgow University.

  • Description

    Full Title reads: "Scotland - "Scots' Wha Hae" Mr Compton Mackenzie - "our first Lord Rector in the kilt," as the Undergraduates have already titled him - installed at Glasgow University."

    Glasgow, Scotland.

    Night-time. Group of young men (probably students) cheering. Some of them carry flaming torches.

    Daylight. Four men in academic caps and gowns walk across University grounds. (I assume one of them is Mr Mackenzie).

    Men in various academic and civic costumes coming out of building. They climb into a car.

    Women students - dressed in cap and gown - parade down a street.

    Various dignitaries climb out of car. C/U one man (probably MacKenzie). Shot of cars from across the road. They have pulled up outside a building with a canopied entrance. A small crowd has gathered to watch the arrival. The cars drive off.
