Chairman's Introduction | Highland Branch News | Pale Brindled Beauty
Sadly we have to report that Jimmy Stewart died on 7th February 2007. Jimmy was co-author of “Highland Butterflies a provisional atlas” and much more, he was an inspiration and a wealth of information which he freely divulged to emergent lepidopterists. I was one of those lucky enough to have shared an interest in butterflies with Jimmy, he always had time to gently guide me in the right direction and I can honestly say he was one of the old-school of naturalists who encouraged and motivated younger members to greater things. Jimmy was instrumental in me becoming chairman of Highland Branch although for personal reasons he never actually became a member. His cartographic skills are legendary and his attention to detail enviable. I will remember him as one of the great gentleman lepidopterists of his time.
