the Violet
Alexander Lindsay in the Midlands
24 December 2018

I have added an article looking at Alexander Lindsay (David Lindsay's brother) and his time in business in the Midlands, something only mentioned briefly in the biographies, but which turns out to be worth exploring, as it throws some light on Alexander's novel The Alias (written as Alexander Crawford), as well as on the strained relationship between Alexander and David. Most of this has come through research in the British Newspaper Archive, plus some other sources.

Another article, which I added last year, covers the families of David Lindsay's mother and father, revealing, among other things, his (distant) link with the Scottish poet Burns.
