Quick Reference

John Laird was born in Durris, Kincardineshire on 7 May 1887 in the parish adjacent to the original birth-place of Thomas Reid, and he died in Aberdeen on 5 August 1946. In his person and career he is characteristic of the traditions of the north-east, as an area historically producing a number of important Scottish philosophers. He was from a scholarly family that customarily entered the Scottish Ministry and there are references in his work to the family influence. Among Laird's publications, for example, there is a set of sermons given by his grandfather.
