The Maxwell Societies

The need for people of Scottish descent to gather together has an almost unprecedented history. The first Maxwell (family) Society was founded by Mervin (Scotty) Maxwell of New Orleans at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games near Atlanta, in the United States of America in 1964. Whilst there were undoubtedly Maxwell gatherings in Scotland over the last eight hundred years, the first modern Maxwell Gathering in Scotland was in 1989.
The societies listed here are just the tip of the iceberg in Maxwell Society terms. There are many that celebrate the life and work of James Clerk Maxwell, one in favour of Sir Herbert Maxwell and any number of collage fraternities and other Maxwell institutions
