Sam Callander

It is with great sadness that I have to announce that Sam Callander passed away peacefully in Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary on Friday 22 June 2012 after a short illness.


Followers of Maxwell will be very aware of the contribution made by Sam in tirelessly promoting the name and achievements of James Clerk Maxwell over many years. Anyone who visited Parton and in particular the small Post Office, where Sam would be behind the counter and they mentioned James Clerk Maxwell, would leave, often much later and much better informed about the life and doings of the great man! In 1989, Sam was instrumental in having a bronze memorial plaque erected outside Parton Churchyard where Maxwell is buried and more recently he became a Trustee of the Maxwell at Glenlair Trust.
