Title: Interview with Ronald McPhee about his service in the Glasgow police, his affinity for South Uist, and his happiness Date recorded: June 25, 1951 Contributor(s): Performer: MacPhee, Ronald; Performer: Lomax, Alan; Recordist: Lomax, Alan
Note: Ronald McPhee (65 years old) discusses his family, his work as a police inspector for the Glasgow police, his affinity for South Uist, and his daily schedule gardening and tending his livestock. He tells Lomax about his sources of happiness, and why he thinks others are without.
About the session: A note inside the tape box for 3383 credits the songs by Duncan MacDonald, nephew of MacCuish, as being sung at the Daliburgh home of a Dr. MacLean on the 23rd, though there is no mention of this location in Lomax's journal. The date of 25 June is assumed from notes in that journal.
