Harry Lauder
1870 - 1950

Scottish entertainer who became internationally known for caricatures of Scotsmen for simple songs such as Roamin' in the Gloamin. Sir Harry was knighted for his work with the troops during World War I and with his charitable foundation.

The future is not a gift - it is an achievement.

quoted in Barnes and Noble Book of Quotations (1987) by Robert I. Fitzhenry
