Image of the Week: 30th June - 6th July 2014

30 June 2014

Everyone loves a cute baby photo! This adorable wee guy grew up to be the well-known poet, James K. Baxter. He was the son of Archibald Baxter and Millicent Brown (who commented on last week’s ferocious photo!), and the grandson of John Macmillan Brown and Helen Connon. Both the Central Library and the Macmillan Brown Library hold many resources about or authored by James K. Baxter, and the Macmillan Brown Library holds some of his personal papers within the archive collection.
