Pollokshields Heritage  

James Hamilton Smith

One of the founder members of Pollokshields Heritage

Born: February 24, 1922
Died: October 26, 2016

He was also known throughout the Scottish rugby community as secretary of the Rugby Section of the Glasgow Academical Club for 34 years.

He was Pollokshields born and bred, as was his proud boast, and lived there most of his days, apart from the first ten years of married life which were spent in Kilmacolm.

He gave unstinting service to Sherbrooke-St Gilbert’s Church where he was a much respected elder, and carried out many acts of private kindness which he was able to accomplish behind the scenes.
