Ceud Mìle Fàilte – Scots Gaelic for “One Hundred Thousand Welcomes” – to the Clan Wallace Society, representing Scots of any Clan and others who wish they were Scots.
The Clan Wallace Society was founded and chartered in Texas in 1966 as a 501(c)(3) organization, promoting the history of and education about Scotland. In particular, Scotland’s Great Patriot, Sir William Wallace, who suffered martyrdom for his country in 1305; its Clans and Families, and the heritage and achievements of those claiming Scottish descent. Our current Chief is Andrew Wallace of that Ilk, 36th Chief of the Clan and Name of Wallace, and Honorary President of the Society. We have the pleasure of more than 1,400 members in the United States, Canada, Scotland, England, France, and as far off as Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand.
Clan Wallace Society is represented at many Scottish Games and Celtic Festivals each year by Conveners who put up tents throughout the United States and Canada. Conveners representing Clan Wallace Society are volunteers who work individually with assistance from our Director of Convener Affairs, each of whom acts to further the goals of Clan Wallace Society’s Charter. In many areas across the United States and Canada, members get together as groups to support other local Scottish, Irish and Celtic historical events. To contact a convener in your region, take a moment to view our Convener List.
