Many years in the making, this beautifully produced, illustrated book is now complete and available for purchase. It is a tribute to over 260 years of Black Watch piping. Established in 1739 the Regiment introduced the tradition of piping into the life of the British Army and the Regiment remained at the forefront of that tradition until its merger with the other Scottish infantry regiments to form the Royal Regiment of Scotland. The book has been compiled by Colonel Sandy Cram, Pipe Major Alistair Duthie, Sir Alistair Irwin and Pipe Major Scott Taylor with much valued input from many others.

This collection of over 250 tunes is the first substantial record of Black Watch pipe music ever to be produced.  It includes tunes composed by Black Watch men, tunes whose titles have an association with the history of the Regiment and tunes that formed part of the daily routine and traditions of Black Watch regimental life.  It includes favourites such The Queen Mother's Century by Pipe Major King, for 10 years the personal piper to Her Majesty; the tune commemorates Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother's 100 th birthday in 2000, her 63 rd year as Colonel in Chief The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment).

The core of the book lies in the tunes themselves, each supported by a short text explaining the significance of the title or the composer.  The value of the collection is further enhanced by a wealth of interesting background information, including an insight into the early days of piping in the Black Watch, the roles of the pipers and drummers in the life and work of the Regiment, and a fine selection of colour and black and white illustrations.

HRH The Duke of Rothesay, who succeeded Her Majesty The Queen Mother as Colonel-in-Chief, states in his foreword, I was delighted to learn of the project to create this collection of pipe tunes associated with the Regiment a long overdue record of its proud piping heritage. I trust that it will inspire future generations of pipers to step forward, eager to help carry a great tradition forward into the future. The book contains a tune especially composed for the book in His Royal Highness honour by Major Steven Small, Director of the Army School of Bagpipe Music and Drumming.

Restrictions on Use: While the University Archives makes every effort to make materials available to researchers, it should be noted that many records and collections are closed to users outside the originating office.

Interdisciplinary Elements of Subject Area
Boston College is engaged in a variety of academic endeavors, and the collections in the University Archives reflect this. Students, scholars, and other researchers have used the holdings to conduct research in a variety of areas in both the sciences and humanities.

Formats and Types of Materials
The University Archives collects in a variety of formats. These include correspondence, memoranda and administrative files; reports and minutes of meetings; publications; unpublished theses and dissertations; faculty, staff, and alumni papers; photographic prints, negatives and slides; video and audio tapes; compact discs and long-playing albums; electronic records; architectural drawings; artifacts; and ephemera.

Languages
Nearly all of the materials documenting the history of Boston College are in English. Some items, especially among the faculty papers, are in other languages. In general, materials are collected regardless of language as long as they record some aspect of University life.

Geographic Areas (Subject Approach)
While material is collected from any of the Boston College campuses or locations of University offices, most of it originates from the main campus in Chestnut Hill. Papers of individual faculty or alumni sometimes contain material originating in other parts of the United States or the world.

Time Periods (Subject Approach)
Most of the collections in the University Archives date from the late twentieth century. However, materials are collected which date from the nineteenth century (Boston College was established in 1863) to the present.
