       Happy New Year   


2024 will welcome a new issue of


THE GALLEY, (issue #47, for Fall/Winter 2023) arrives in January 2024.  It will feature a summary of the first half of the recent biography of Hermon Atkins MacNeil.  This book, (researched, written, and published) by James Haas has been previewed several times here since its release in November 2022.

THE GALLEY is the official magazine of the Clan MacNeil Association of America edited by Vicki Sanders Corporon.  As a teen she assisted her mother, Nellie McNeill Sanders, who was then Editor.  Ever since, they continued the mother/daughter labors leading to Vicki following her mother as Editor. 

Under Vicki’s watch  THE GALLEY has grown into a bound full-color volume published semi-annually.  It is mailed world-wide to all members  of the Association as a privilege of membership.

MEMBERSHIP:  You may join the Clan MacNeil Association (CLICK HERE)  with or without kinship.  You will enjoy receiving and reading  THE GALLEY.

GALLEY of Spring/ Summer 2014

My upcoming articles are the fourth and fifth that I have written for THE GALLEY. 1, 2, 3.    Part 2 will condense the second half of Haas’ book and be featured in the Spring/Summer issue of THE GALLEY. 

I enjoy writing for THE GALLEY and working with Vicki Corporon.  Many factors contribute to that pleasure:

  • Our travel through Scotland and Isle of Barra in 2014 has generated tremendous knowledge, imagery, and appreciation for my Scottish heritage (MacNeil and McKay).
  • My 14 years as Webmaster of this website has allowed me to produce nearly 300 postings.  My reading, research, photography, and travel have become my retirement career.
  • My collaboration with James E. Haas through these years AND his continued research and publication of the Hermon MacNeil Biography  have produced parallel research heightening public interest and awareness of  Hermon Atkins MacNeil.

  • I’ve spent the last decade traveling and photographing monuments, statues, and  geography associated with MacNeil’s life and accumulated a database of resources for my writing.
  • Through the website, I have met so many MacNeil descendants and enthusiasts (I call them my “Friends of https://HermonAtkinsMacNeil.com)
  • My minting of the MacNeil Medallion commemorative in 2016 has increased knowledge and enthusiasm for Hermon Atkins MacNeil, the Standing Liberty Quarter. 
  • 2016 MacNeil Medallion marking the 150th Anniversary the birth of Hermon A. MacNeil. Commissioned by our webmaster, these numbered medals are available on eBay.
