  SINCLAIR HISTORY AND GENEALOGY: William Sinclair of the Orkney Islands   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
William Sinclair of Orkney, a descendant of the first William Sinclair of Roslin and of Henry Sinclair, Earl of Orkney, was born in 1766 in Harray Parish, Orkney Islands (outlined in map of Scotland below), a chain of islands which has played a major role in the Sinclair family since the 13th century.
William Sinclair, known as "the elder," was born in the Orkney Islands in 1766 on the family freehold croft, called East-on-quay.
William Auld, then officer in charge of company affairs at York Factory, had vociferously opposed the grandiose plans of the astute if idealistic Lord Selkirk to place a colony of evicted Highland crofters at the forks of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, which chanced to be within William Sinclair's new sphere of administration.

 William Auld
William Auld is the most renowned of the four poets and prose writers who burst onto the Esperanto literary scene in 1951, with the publication of Kvaropo, thus establishing the "Scottish School".
Auld had in fact debuted earlier during the latter days of Literatura Mondo (1947-49) and from 1949 to 1955 he edited the modest but historically significant periodical Esperanto en Skotlando which was a forum for the young writers of that time.
Born in 1924, Auld learned the language in 1937 but didn't become active on the literary scene until 10 years later, after establishing himself in his career as a teacher of English Literature.

William's work was unusual for the time: he never attempted a sonnet, as near as we can tell, and he really wasn't very good at couplets, which all of his contemporaries considered the only good forms of poetry.
William attended the Royal Academy after finishing his apprenticeship and was soon able to support himself by his engraving.
William's behavior was awfully strange, and he never made the slightest attempt to hide it.

 Guardian | William Auld
The Scottish Esperanto poet and translator William Auld, who has died aged 81, was the foremost Esperanto writer of his generation, and in 1999 was nominated for the Nobel Prize for Literature.
It confirmed Auld's mastery of style and language, and was inspired in part - but was not a slavish copy - of Ezra Pound's Cantos.
Auld said later that the wartime poems were of no merit: "Although I knew the language, I did not know its poetics."

It was as a scout in 1936 that Auld encountered Esperanto.
Auld's first published work was a translation which appeared in 1947 in Esperanto en Skotlando, the Scottish Esperanto periodical founded in that year and which Auld later edited (1949-55).
Auld himself, however, said his principal accomplishment was the translation of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings (1995).

 William Auld: a true stalwart
I wonder if there are any countries in the world in which the most important creative writers do as much hard slog for the ethnic language as many of the leading Esperanto writers do for the Esperanto movement.
Although I can't be absolutely sure, I am fairly certain that Auld was the editor of one journal or another since the early 1950s.
Auld was also responsible for many useful bibliographical contributions and produced his own "Baza legolisto de la originala Esperanto-literaturo" (Basic reading list of original Esperanto literature) which can be found at:
