Collection Description

Biographical Note

Charles Calder Mackintosh was born in Tain, located in the northwest Scottish Highlands, in 1806. His father, Angus Mackintosh (d. 1830), was the Presbyterian minister at Tain. His mother was Anne Calder, whose father, Charles Calder, was a Presbyterian minister at Ferintosh. Charles Calder Mackintosh attended the Tain Academy and received his license to preach from the Church of Scotland in 1827. He succeeded his father at Tain and served there until 1854 when he transferred to the milder climate of Dunoon on the west coast of Scotland to restore his failing health. Mackintosh served at Dunoon until the spring of 1868, when he traveled to Pau in the south of France for his health. He died on November 24, 1868 and was buried in Pau. He was survived by his wife of twenty-one years.

Charles Calder Mackintosh was a member of the Church of Scotland until the Disruption of the Church of Scotland in 1843. At that time he, and a substantial portion of the Tain congregation, withdrew to join the Free Church of Scotland. Mackintosh remained a member of the Free Church until his death.

Scope and Content Note

This scrapbook contains published obituaries and book reviews, as well as a handwritten copy of the minutes of the Free Church Session held at Dunoon on December 17, 1868. Charles Calder Mackintosh is the subject of the four obituaries, which were clipped from various newspapers. There are also ten articles reviewing the book, “Memorials of the Life and Ministry of Charles Calder Mackintosh, D.D., of Tain and Dunoon,” edited by Rev. W. Taylor, M.A., and published by Edmonston and Douglas of Edinburgh in 1871. The minutes of the Free Church contain the session’s expression of sorrow at the death of Dr. Mackintosh and were presented to his widow. The compiler of the scrapbook is unknown.
