Association copy. The Kinnaird School in Lahore was the oldest girls' school in Pakistan having been founded in 1864. It became the Kinnaird Academy in 1996. The name came from a titled Scottish family which helped support it. Lady Emily Kinnaird appears to have been a person of some substance from a Google reference indicating she called on Gandhi in 1940 to adopt Chistianity. The author, Jack Copley Winslow, wrote a number of books on Christianity in India between 1923 and 1968, one with Verrier Elwin. Very Good.
