Administrative HistoryLockhart's appreciation of 'Alexander Low: Professor of Anatomy, 1925 - 1938' was published in the 'Aberdeen Postgraduate Bulletin', October 1971. Accompanying the article, was a photograph called the 'Conversation Piece', which shows Sir James R. Learmonth in conversation with Professor Low. This photograph was taken on the occasion of a reception held by Principal and Mrs Fyfe to mark the marriage of their daughter to Mr Cyril Mabey, n.d. ? c 1940, and has been much re-used since.

The textual content of the appreciation is very similar to that published in the Centenary Issue of the 'Aberdeen University Review', 38 (1959 - 1960) (MS 3270/6/5/8).
