Duncan Guthrie, charity organiser: born London 1 October 1911; OBE 1976; married 1949 Prue Holloway (one son, two daughters); died Amberley, West Sussex 12 October 1994.

DUNCAN GUTHRIE was a nonparty socialist concerned with the health and welfare of children throughout the world and, in particular, with the prevention of disabilities and the care of the disabled. With Alf Morris, he was closely involved in the All Party Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act (1970), which paved the way for subsequent legislation for the disabled in this country.

One of Guthrie's greatest achievements was the financial support of medical research. This started in 1949 when Janet, his first child, developed poliomyelitis. This was at a time when progress was being made in the United States in the development of poliomyelitis vaccines, while in Britain, as the late Bill Bradley of the Department of Health said, 'The problem of polio in England is - ignorance, impotence and insecurity.' Guthrie alerted society to this problem at the Festival of Britain and with his wife Prue set up the National Fund for Poliomyelitis Research with himself as the Director. Their first headquarters was two tiny dark rooms up three flights of stairs above a fruit shop in Spenser Street, in Westminster. Guthrie deplored the development of palatial offices and large staffs by charities and insisted that money collected for a charity should be spent on its aims.

When Director of the NFPR, he had to be persuaded to accept an increase in salary for himself while his wife was doing a full-time job to help support the family of three children.

In fund-raising, Guthrie demonstrated the same fertile and imaginative mind that had engineered his escape from Norway during the Second World War when the International Finnish Brigade, to which he belonged, was disbanded; and that he had shown in France when he was dropped there by parachute to associate with the Maquis and liberation forces, and later when he hid for weeks in the Burma jungle with a badly broken foot following another parachute jump.

One of Guthrie's earliest innovative fund-raising efforts was to introduce the popular Christmas Seals - adhesive seal stamps - by having a real seal (which refused to go in the lift) flobber up the stairs at the Waldorf Hotel. (He was discouraged from inviting the Lord Privy Seal to the reception.) In the organisation of the NFPR, which became known to many as the 'National Fund' or the 'Fund', he was subtle in using the power and the influence of the grandees on the Council but at the same time he had an advisory body of carefully selected experts who advised on the distribution of the funds which were collected. In the early days the fund supported the first European trials of oral poliovirus vaccines in Belfast which established their effectiveness and safety standards for their subsequent world use.

Following this, the fund supported many other aspects of medical research in relation to problems of disablement and funded the endowment of 13 medical chairs in universities in the United Kingdom. Guthrie was given an honorary doctorate and masters degrees from several universities, but he sought no recognition for the greatest contribution any individual has made to funding medical research in the United Kingdom.

After polio could be beaten, he changed the name of the fund to Action Research for the Crippled Child, which continued to support a wide programme of research in disabling diseases.
Guthrie then turned his attention to the relief and rehabilitation of the paralysed, not only in the UK but in the developing world, and set up 'intermediate technology techniques' for developing equipment for the locomotion of the disabled in developing countries.

When he retired as Director of Action Research he initiated a programme at the Institute of Child Health to provide essential health education for rural populations in Third World countries, particularly in Africa. This was called 'Child to Child' and was largely based on the novel idea of older children teaching their siblings about disease prevention and other health problems.

His lameness made commuting to London tiresome and after he retired for the second time he founded a small action group as a charity at his home in Amberley called the 'Disability Study Unit' with a committee of three. It supported various health research activities including the problems of Street Children in South America and published a number of articles including 'Caring for Someone with Aids'.

Guthrie was a scholar of the stage and of English literature, for which he had a prodigious memory. Shortly before his death he was finishing a book on reduplicated or ricochet words.

3020 The next Hawick worthy to tackle the industry was James Dalgleish. ‘Auld Velvet Feet’ was born in Upper Damside in 1819. An apprentice printer with the John Kennedy above, he started his own business as a bookseller when only 18, in a shop at the foot of ‘the Tunnel’ close, where he sold bibles…and whisky on the side!

In 1847, James published The Hawick Advertiser & Repository of Information and Amusement, a pamphlet consisting wholly of ads. Encouraged by the withdrawal of advertisement duty and a cheap postal system, he had another stab with the introduction of Dalgleish’s Circular, an advertising sheet, on September 5, 1853. By November, the name had changed to Dalgleish’s Advertising Circular and around 500 copies were distributed to Ashkirk, Bonchester, Denholm and Wilton. Issue no.5 was to be the last, printed in December that same year.

However, these failures paved the way for Hawick’s first paper of note, The Hawick Advertiser, published by Dalgleish in January 1854. Consisting of four pages, with five columns each, the first issue focused on New Year festivities in and around the town. The Advertiser was originally printed on the first Saturday of each month by John Brown in Market Street, Gala, and cost 1½d. The unfortunate printing location was remedied in April 1855 with a move to 11 High Street, Hawick, and the publishers relocated next door to no.9. That year also saw the abolition of stamp duty on newspapers, and the paper was renamed The Hawick Advertiser and Roxburghshire Gazette.

Dalgleish soon left Hawick for Langholm to start a tweed business, and sold his publishing firm to James Haining (but still printed The Advertiser for him). The new venture proved unsuccessful, and following a spell as manager of the Eskdale & Liddesdale Advertiser, Dalgleish returned in 1857 to take over the stationary business from Haining. From thereon in, the paper was published weekly; Thomas Cathrae was appointed editor. Also in 1857, bookseller Robert Black established The Hawick Times at 17 High Street, as a large, four-page sheet with six columns. Priced at 1d, it was printed in Edinburgh and only lasted for twelve issues. Another short-lived effort was The Border Beacon and Advertiser published in Gala, Hawick, Melrose, and Selkirkshire, by A.W. Lyall, in 1863-1864.

A fresh twist came in 1870 when Haining refused to take on Dalgleish’s son William as a partner, and James’ request for a larger share in ownership was rejected. Messrs Dalgleish decided to publish their own paper instead - enter The Hawick Express and Scottish Border News.
