An extremely edited Version of Dr Mathews manuscript exists on the website.  It is edited with a tilt to this organizations slanted view of its own importance and history.

It is my belief that history shall not be toyed with!  Please see the chapters below.  Please contact me with your comments!!!

The official Clan MacTavish website posts a brief edited version of this manuscript, totally ignoring the last three chapters of the manuscript.  I am linking to PDF  files contacting these long ignored chapters of McTavish history!  These are edited only by Dr. Mathews himself.  It is a copy of the original manuscript!
