Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The St. Andrew's Society was founded in Huddersfield on 20th October 1884 in order that those of Scottish birth could organise an annual St Andrew's night dinner and promote union and friendship amongst their fellow ex-pats. A committee was established and met regularly to organise the annual dinner, arrange for lectures and social evenings based around Scottish subjects and traditionally Scottish forms of entertainment. There was a Ladies chapter, and the society also undertook fundraising and philanthropic work for local charities.
