100 Years ago, in New York City, a Story of

The Clan MacNeil Association of America

Robert Lister MacNeil  —  Hermon Atkins MacNeil

… and 56 other MacNeils

The year 2021 marks the Centennial of the founding of the Clan MacNeil Association of America.  While the Galley, celebrates the Clan MacNeil with every issue, this one sings it — a “wee bit” louder – well, actually more in forte.  One hundred years, that’s auld lang syne. (old long ago).  So, let’s stop, remember, and celebrate the founding of this Association and those who made it possible.   

Robert Lister MacNeil, Barra XIV, 1915

The Association is Born.  One century has now passed since Robert Lister MacNeil, The MacNeil of Barra XIV, called a meeting on May 26, 1921 at the Caledonian Club in New York City.  Hermon A. MacNeil, on behalf of the Barra, sent out a call to clansmen.  Those who responded came together that night and accomplished four things: 1) formally organized the Association, 2) elected officers, 3.) adopted a constitution of three articles, and 4) recorded in Article 3 a list of Charter Members from across America — the United States and Canada.  This event marked the official birth of the Clan MacNeil Association of America with Robert Lister MacNeil, the Barra XIV, as the patron of brighter days for MacNeils in America and Scotland.
