John Hood is a long-standing member of Kirkintilloch and District Society of Antiquaries and has provided it with numerous talks over the years. During his working life he was Chief Librarian of the former Clydebank District Council, where he gained for his employer a reputation for publishing some outstanding local history volumes. In retirement he has researched and prepared many illustrated books for the well-known Stenlake Publishing series. One of these, on Old Drymen and the Blane and Endrick Villages (2000), included some annotated photographs of the Hutters' site at Carbeth; John's talk is an expanded version of this research on the Carbeth community that was created soon after the First World War. .
