Setting the Record Straight

The Right Honourable Dr. James Gordon Brown, Prime Minister, has been described on Lost Legacy several times as having been born in Kirkcaldy, as was Adam Smith, but a correspondent writes to me correcting this as an error.

Apparently, Gordon Brown was born in Glasgow (20 February 1951) and moved to Kirkcaldy with his family in 1955, from whence he continued in residence in what is now his constituency. He attended Kirkcaldy Scool, the predecessor of which was attended by Adam Smith in the 18th century.

Apologies. Lost Legacy will always corrects errors of fact whenever it is appraised of them.
