Scope and Content

This volume contains minutes of the Association, 17 Nov 1864 - 4 Mar 1868. It was re-used in the period 1873 - 1879 to record essay marks, though it is not clear by whom, or to which classes they refer (possibly relating to classes taught at the University of Aberdeen).

Administrative / Biographical History

The Association was constituted on 17 Nov 1864. It aimed to foster a missionary spirit within Old Machar Parish and sought to increase the level of charitable contributions made by its members to various charitable schemes run by the Church.
