Make Time for Tea

The long and celebrated history of the University of Iowa’s Scottish Highlanders spans almost 80 years. Originally formed in 1935 by Colonel George Dailey and Bill Adamson as a bagpipe accompaniment to the R.O.T.C. Military Corps, the band quickly grew in size and notoriety.

The musicians performed at their first football game a mere two years after the group’s formation, and, by the 1950s, the Highlanders had evolved into a university institution. As international representatives for the UI, they traveled extensively—including seven trips to Europe from 1952 to 1976, two Rose Bowl performances, and countless events throughout the state. Known for their excellent philanthropic endeavors, the Scottish Highlanders have long stood as a symbol for good citizenship and moral character.

On Saturday, April 13, the UIAA proudly honors the University of Iowa Scottish Highlander Alumni & Friends Group (UISHAFG) at the unveiling of the long-awaited addition to the UI Scottish Highlander exhibit. This interactive kiosk enhances the exhibit with film clips, archival photos, and narratives. Join us at the UI Athletics Hall of Fame from 1 to 4 p.m. for the big reveal—featuring shortbread, scones, and Scottish tea.

Deadline to register for this event is Tuesday, April 9. We hope to see you there!
