Dr John Stewart Muir
Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre - Auditorium
John Nichol plays Dr John Stewart Muir who served as medical practitioner for
Selkirk Burgh from 1867 - 1928, during which time he delivered 3,344
babies. In 2014 the Heritage Hub in Hawick received a collection of Dr
Muir’s diaries from his descendants, the Roberts family. The 40 diaries
are an almost complete set from 1899 to 1938, when Dr Muir died, and
includes an earlier one from 1891. This play is based on his stories.
