Clan Baird Society Worldwide (originally Baird Family Society), is a non-profit, worldwide organization, which began forming in the late 1960’s and was finally established, with the blessing of the Honourable Lord Lyon King of Arms, in 1972. The founders are Frances and Byron Baird of Florida and our Commander’s grandfather, James Ian Baird of Ury and Lochwood, 2nd Viscount Stonehaven and later 12th Earl of Kintore and Chief of Clan Keith. The Earl of Kintore and his children have continued to support the Society through the years, as they still do.
