The original Clan Logan Society was founded in 1913 by Thomas Logan, Esq., Provost of Partick, in Glasgow.
Two successful Clan Gatherings were held in Glasgow in 1913 and 1914. But with the advent of World War I, the Clan Gatherings were placed in abeyance. So many Clansmen laid down their lives for King and Country during this War that the Society disbanded.
The new Clan Logan Society International, Inc. was established in 2002 under the leadership of Vernon E. Logan of North Carolina, USA, to carry on the efforts of the original Society.
The objectives of the two Societies are similar, the latter based in part on the former:
1) To foster the Clan sentiment and spirit; to cultivate and develop a sense of clanship and thereby promote sociability and friendly discourse between Members;
2) To collect and preserve History, Traditions, Music, Poetry, Relics, etc., connected with the Clan; to be documented and disseminated via newsletter and website;
3) To encourage the wearing of the Clan Tartan and Highland Dress; and also the display and wearing of the Clan Crest;
4) To establish and give prizes for Competition in the History, Traditions, and Legends of the Clan.
Hoc Majorum Virtus
"This [crest] is the Valor of my Ancestors"
It is a reminder of the bravery of our ancient and revered kinsmen who died in pursuit of their sworn duty and allegiance to Sir Robert the Bruce, King of Scots.
It should be a reminder to us of our Noble Scottish Ancestry.
