1878 · Collapse of the City of Glasgow Bank.

Age 1

Because of a discovery of a £7,000 deficit, City of Glasgow Bank halted operations from November to December 1877. After 10 months after reopening, the bank’s directors announced the bank, itself, had filed bankruptcy. The closure showed a net liability of over £6 million. The bank was so successful with telling people that it wasn’t in error, that the Bank's shares were selling for more than double of what they were actually worth. The bank’s directors were arrested and tried at the High Court. All were found guilty and sentenced to terms of imprisonment. Many Glasgow businesses failed as a result of the bankruptcy and shareholders were called to replenish the bank's losses. One shareholder argued that he had become a shareholder unknowing the fraudulent actions of the bank. Wide effects of the collapse have been seen in limited growth in liability and extensive problems with temporary banking liquidity.

1902 · The Scottish National Antarctic Expedition

Age 25

The Scottish National Antarctic Expedition was organized and led by William Speirs Bruce. Him along with Robert Falcon Scott’s Discovery Expedition completed an exploration of Antarctica. They established the first manned meteorological station, the Orcadas, in 1903 and discovered new land east of the Weddell Sea. The expedition was described as the most cost-effective and carefully planned scientific expedition of the Heroic Age. The Orcadas weather station has been in continuous operation ever since.

Name Meaning

Hebrew: In Hebrew, the scriptural name Adhám signifies "man," literally earthy or red earth; one authority says the name in Ethiopic means to be fair or beautiful. From this name comes the nurse-name Addy, or little Adam. The Gaelic form is Adambh. Adamina is a female name formed from Adam.
