Hall of Fame

Hall of Fame

As the birthplace of John Logie Baird, Helensburgh will be forever associated with the moving image – an association that continues to the present day. From the archetypal Hollywood ‘English Rose’ Deborah Kerr through to an artist of the digital age, Laura Grieve, from Cecil B. DeMille protégée David MacDonald, to hit box office film maker Tom Vaughan.

Whether behind the camera, in front of it, or providing its soundtrack, members of Helensburgh’s silver screen stars have played a major role in producing some of the most iconic cinematic moments and sounds, and they have the Oscars, Emmys and BAFTAs to prove it.

But this is only half the story, Helensburgh has associations with some of the finest scientific, creative, sporting and courageous men and women that have ever lived – from the Father of Kew Gardens, to a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient to gold medal winning Olympians – and who have made, and are continuing to make, significant and inspirational contributions to the society of today.

You will find their remarkable and inspiring stories in our Hall of Fame.
