Dundee, New South Wales
Dundee is a rural locality about 40 kilometres north of Glen Innes on the Northern Tablelands, New South Wales, Australia. It is situated on the New England Highway at the Severn River in Severn parish, Gough County, New South Wales; the elevation is 985 metres. In 1838 John Baker and several others left Sydney to seek land and setup stations on the Northern Tablelands. After the others selected their land Baker continued north to secure the lease of 40,000 acres, which he called "Dareel Plains" to become Dundee. By 1844 the property had been sold several times before Major Archibald Clunes Innes took it over that year. At one stage Innes was one of the wealthiest men in the Colony, but suffered during the 1840s depression and was declared bankrupt in 1852. In 1845 the newly established Dundee flour mill was the first flour mill north of Aberdeen, New South Wales. Major Innes built the ‘Golden Fleece’ Hotel at Dundee in 1847, to become one of the first three hotels built in New England; the large colonial style brick building was the first important building to be erected near the shallow river crossing.
Cobb and Co coaches ran a coach service to Armidale, prior to the advent of the rail service. The Dundee Railway is 387 miles north of Sydney and opened 1 September 1886 and closed 27 March 1976; the Public School opened in August 1853 and closed May 1974. Another school opened as Dundee Railway Station School in August 1891, changed to Dundee Rail 1940 and closed 1949; the Post Office opened 1 October 1851 and closed in 1974. In 1989 the Severn River Rail Bridge, 6 km west-south-west of Dundee and 18 km north-north-east of Glen Innes on the Main North railway line, was listed on the Register of the National Estate; the bridge consists of a series of timber trusses, considered a significant technical accomplishment. When completed it was the longest timber truss bridge in Australia. Little else remains of the village that once existed there, aside from the church, a sports ground and the cemetery; the surrounding district supports beef cattle grazing plus some tourism. Dundee has a number of heritage-listed sites, including: Main Northern railway, 701.98 km: Severn River railway bridge Hartmann, Eileen.

Dundee is a city in Yamhill County, United States. The population was 3,162 at the 2010 census; the first post office in the area was Ekins, established in 1881. Dundee is named in honor of the birthplace of William Reid, Scotland.

Dundee Football Club is a professional football club based in the city of Dundee, Scotland. Founded in 1893, they are nicknamed "The Dark Blues" or "The Dee"; the club plays. The club's most successful era was in the 1960s when, under the management of Bob Shankly, Dundee won the Scottish Football League title in 1962 for the only time in their history before reaching the semi-finals of the 1962–63 European Cup. Dundee have won the Scottish Cup once in 1910 and the Scottish League Cup three times. Dundee F. C. was formed in 1893 by the merger of two local clubs, East End and Our Boys, with the intention of gaining election to the Scottish Football League. Their application was successful and they played their first League game on 12 August 1893 at West Craigie Park, securing a 3–3 draw against Rangers. Dundee struggled during the first 10 years of their existence, their best league position was fifth which they achieved in seasons 1895–96 and 1896–97. They reached the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup in 1894–95 and 1897–98, losing to Renton and Kilmarnock respectively.
On 26 October 1895 Dundee lost a league game by a record score of 0–11 to Celtic in Glasgow. On 1 January 1894 Dundee defeated Newton Heath 2–1 at their Carolina Port ground in Dundee. Carolina Port hosted the first international football match held in Dundee on 21 March 1896 when Scotland defeated Wales 4–0. Dundee's goalkeeper Frank Barrett, midfielder Sandy Keillor and inside-forward Bill Thomson were all capped for Scotland during this early period of the club's history. Things began to improve for Dundee with the beginning of the new century. In 1899 they moved from Carolina Port to their present ground of Dens Park. In season 1902–03 they finished runners-up in the league championship to Hibernian. Dundee were league runners-up in 1906–07 and 1908–09 finishing behind Celtic on both occasions, in 1908–09 by just 1 point. In the 10 seasons from 1902–03 Dundee lost just 16 league games at Dens Park out of 154 played and were unbeaten at home during season 1909–10. Although ultimate success eluded Dundee in the league the club achieved success in the Scottish Cup.
In season 1909–10 Dundee won their first trophy by defeating Clyde in the Scottish Cup Final. The winning goal in the second replay was scored by John'Sailor' Hunter. In season 1910–11 Dundee defeated Rangers 2–1 at Dens Park in the Scottish Cup quarter-final but lost to Hamilton in the semi-final; the beginning of the First World War and the call-up of many players for military duty drastically curtailed football in Britain from 1914 and in 1917 Dundee and Aberdeen were both asked to withdraw from the league due to increasing transport costs for the other league clubs. In 1919 league football recommenced and good home form once again propelled Dundee up the league, they finished 4th in seasons 1919–20, 1920–21 and 1921–22, were unbeaten at home during season 1921–22. However, they could not make the breakthrough to win the league championship. Dave Halliday had played on the left for his previous clubs, his hometown side Queen of the South and St Mirren. Halliday went to Dundee in 1921 with the celebrated Alec Troup playing on the left wing.
Dundee thus converted Halliday to centre forward with prolific results, finishing as Scottish top scorer in the 1923–24 season with 38 goals from 36 appearances – a good return in the era of the three-man off-side rule. With Halliday Dundee reached the 1924–25 Scottish Cup final eliminating the holders en route, the Airdrieonians side of Hughie Gallacher. Halliday scored 103 goals in 147 cup appearances for the Dee; the post-Second World War period was a golden era for Dundee Football Club. Having been relegated on the eve of war, the Dark Blues started in 1946 in the first official season in the second tier but within five years they were runners-up in the Scottish League Championship and won their first trophy in forty-one years. Back to back'B’ Division titles earned George Anderson's Dundee promotion in 1947 and just two years they were within a whisker of becoming Champions of Scotland. Silverware wasn't far away however as after spending a world record transfer fee of £23,500 on Billy Steel, much to the chagrin of modern-day supporters of the club – at least some anyway – who resented the aspect of finance in football and wish instead for'homegrown' talent, they won the Scottish League Cup in 1951 in one of the most exciting finals Hampden has seen.
Twelve months Dundee were back at Hampden to become the first side to retain the League Cup and in between these two victories appeared in the 1952 Scottish Cup Final. The Dark Blue side of the era included players such as Bill Brown, Tommy Gallacher, Doug Cowie, Alfie Boyd, Bobby Flavell and Billy Steel. In the 1958–59 Scottish Cup Dundee suffered a shock 1–0 defeat to Highland League side Fraserburgh; this is regarded as Dundee's most embarrassing defeat in their history. Bob Shankly was appointed manager in 1959. Dundee won the league title of Scotland's top division called the Division One, in the 1961–62 season. With players such as Bobby Cox, Bobby Wishart, Pat Liney, Alan Cousin, Andy Penman, Hugh Robertson, Alan Gilzean, Alex Hamilton, Bobby Seith, Gordon Smith and Ian Ure they clinched the title with a win against St Johnstone, which in turn relegated St Johnstone to the Second Division. Gordon Smith earned the distinction of being the only player to win the Scottish football championship with three clubs (Hibs, Hearts and
Dundee United F.C.
Dundee United Football Club is a Scottish professional football club based in the city of Dundee. Formed in 1909 as Dundee Hibernian, the club changed to the present name in 1923. United are nicknamed The Terrors or The Tangerines and the supporters are known as Arabs; the club has played in tangerine kits since the 1960s and have played at the present ground, Tannadice Park, since their foundation in 1909. United were founder members of the Scottish Premier League in 1998 and were ever-present in the competition until it was abolished in 2013 to make way for the SPFL structure. United were relegated in 2016 to the Scottish Championship, the second tier of the SPFL. Domestically, the club has won the Scottish Premier Division on one occasion, the Scottish Cup twice and the Scottish League Cup twice. United appeared in European competition for the first time in the 1966–67 season, going on to appear in Europe in 14 successive seasons from 1976, they reached the European Cup semi-finals in 1983–84 season and the UEFA Cup final in 1987.
The club has a 100% record in four matches against Barcelona in competitive European ties. The club's main rivals are Dundee; the two teams contest the Dundee derby, with the local rivals' Dens Park stadium being located next door to Tannadice Park. The club was formed as Dundee Hibernian in 1909, they were voted into the Scottish Football League in 1910. After being saved from going out of business in October 1923, the club changed their name to Dundee United in order to widen their appeal. Between 1925 and 1932 United were promoted and relegated three times, winning the Second Division title in 1925 and 1929; the club took significant strides forward when Jerry Kerr became manager in 1959. Kerr's team won promotion in his first season in charge and became an established team in the top flight, where they remained until 1995. A key characteristic of Kerr's reign was the strengthening of the playing squad with Scandinavian imports, most notably with the signings of Lennart Wing, Finn Dossing, Mogens Berg, Finn Seemann and Orjan Persson.
It was during this period that United qualified for European competition for the first time, eliminating Inter-Cities Fairs Cup holders Barcelona on their European debut in 1966. Jim McLean took over from Kerr in 1971 and under his management the club enjoyed the most successful era in its history. McLean's era became known for his youth policy and the offering of long term contracts that would see future Scotland international players such as Dave Narey, Paul Sturrock, Paul Hegarty, Davie Dodds, Eamonn Bannon and Maurice Malpas spend the majority of their careers at the club. United won its first major honour under McLean, capturing the Scottish League Cup first in 1979 and again in 1980, they were crowned Premier Division champions in 1982–83. The club were successful in Europe, reaching the European Cup semi-finals in 1984 and the UEFA cup Final in 1987, the latter campaign involving another elimination of Barcelona during the earlier rounds. Despite losing to IFK Gothenburg in the final, the club was awarded a FIFA Fair Play Award.
McLean remained as club chairman. United won the Scottish Cup for the first time in 1994 under McLean's successor Ivan Golac, but were relegated in 1995, before returning to the Premier Division a year later. Following a number of board changes, the club was purchased from McLean in 2002 by former Morning Noon and Night co-founder and chief executive Eddie Thompson. A life long United fan, Thompson invested in the team in a bid to compete with significant spending which had developed following the formation of the Scottish Premier League, however little progress was made until Craig Levein became manager in 2006. Levein established United as a Top Six club achieving European qualification before he left the club to take the post as Scotland manager in 2009. With the foundations of the side in place, United won the Scottish Cup for a second time in 2010 under the management of Peter Houston. After several successful seasons, a series of poor results in the Premiership led to United being relegated in 2016.
Dundee United's first season in the Championship was under the management of Ray McKinnon. United won the Challenge Cup by beating St Mirren 2–1 in the final and they reached the play-off final for the Premiership; however they lost narrowly 1–0 to Hamilton. The second season in the second tier was less successful, as manager McKinnon was sacked and replaced with Csaba László. After a poor start to the 2018–19 season the manager was once again sacked and replaced with Robbie Neilson. For a complete pictorial history of playing kit, see the Historical Football Kits site. United's playing kit consists of tangerine shirts and black shorts, first used when the team played under the Dallas Tornado moniker in the United Soccer Association competition of 1967, which they were invited to participate in after their first European excursion had created many headlines in the football world. After persuasion by the wife of manager Jerry Kerr, the colour would soon be adopted as the club's own in 1969 to give the club a brighter, more modern image.
The new colour was paraded for the first time in a pre-season friendly against Everton in August. When founded as Dundee Hibernian, they had followed the example of other clubs of similar heritage by adopting the traditionally Irish colours of green shirts and white shorts. By the time the club became Dundee United in 1923, the colours had been changed to white shirts and black shorts as they sought to appeal to a wider cross-section of the community. Th
The Cat Who...
The Cat Who... is a series of twenty-nine mystery novels and three related collections by Lilian Jackson Braun and published by G. P. Putnam's Sons, featuring a reporter named Jim Qwilleran and his Siamese cats, Kao K'o-Kung and Yum Yum; the first was written in 1966, with two more following in 1967 and 1968. The fourth appeared eighteen years after which at least one new novel was published every year until 2007. A thirtieth novel announced for 2008, was postponed indefinitely by its publisher and canceled after the author's death in 2011, it remains unpublished. Qwilleran, or Qwill as his friends call him, is the main human character in the books, he was born Merlin James Qwilleran, a fact explained by his mother as a product of reading King Arthur during her pregnancy. His father, was a talented theater actor who toured the country; when he met Qwill's mother, Anne Mackintosh, they chose to stay in Chicago, so he could not stay in his theater group. Qwill's grandparents disapproved of this relationship, broke off all contact with his mother.
Because of this, Qwill never knew any family other than his mother. But he does remember his mother's friend Francesca Klingenschoen, known to Qwilleran as Aunt Fanny, he grew up with Arch Riker, who would be his lifelong friend, with a love of literature. He was smart at school, won many spelling bees and was always fond of language and baseball. One of his English teachers was influential, cultivating his ability to compose an interesting essay on any topic; when he was seventeen, his girlfriend, Joy Wheatley left to "find herself" and Qwill joined the service. It is never explicitly stated which war he fought in, but it is that he served during Operation Torch during World War II, since several times throughout the series he uses a curse he learned while in North Africa, he came out of it with an injured knee and so could not have the career in baseball he always desired. So he went to college, participated in some acting, but found it was journalism for which he had a natural knack. In this light he decided to become a journalist, encountered great success in this field.
He reported on crime for major newspapers, wrote a book, City of Brotherly Crime, won many awards. He married Miriam, an advertising executive who resembled Joy, but the marriage was bad and ended in a shattering divorce that left Miriam in an insane asylum and Qwill feeling depressed and guilty. This led him to lose his job. One night while drunk, he fell into the path of a subway train and was rescued just in time; this brought him back to reality and he got help. After resolving never to touch alcohol again, he was broke. Qwill went to "the city" to get a job at The Daily Fluxion; the books continue the story from this point. One summer, he and his cats go for a quiet retreat, vacationing in the north woods, visit Aunt Fanny on the way. Soon after, Aunt Fanny dies, Qwill is surprised to learn that her will leaves the vast Klingenschoen fortune to him—provided he lives in Moose County for the next 5 years. So Qwilleran moves to Moose County in the northern part of the state, the next few books record this adjustment—for him, his cats.
Despite the initial culture shock of small-town life, Qwilleran makes friends and, after determining that being a billionaire is a nuisance, establishes the Klingenschoen Foundation, a philanthropic organization dedicated to improving life in Moose County and surrounds. After a while, his life settles into a yearly pattern, he spends autumns at the four-story apple barn he'd had converted into a residence. Qwilleran is a man. He's six feet, two inches tall, with salt-and-pepper hair, he is overweight in the early books, but loses some weight over the course of the series. He is described as looking melancholy or brooding, but he is witty and enjoyable company, his most distinguishing feature is his "luxuriant moustache,", considered attractive by many women, Polly Duncan describes it as being similar to the composer Edward MacDowell’s. However, his moustache is more than mere facial hair. Whenever Qwilleran gets a suspicion that something is wrong or his instincts are right, he will get "a tingling sensation on his upper lip."
Depending upon the strength of the sensation, he may be seen "stroking it with his fingertips" to "pounding with his knuckles". Qwilleran has a willingness to listen, described as part curiosity and part professional interest, he has a strong desire to investigate things that are not his business and could endanger him, these investigations make up the plot of the various books. He gets on well with most people, but prefers to avoid children. Although he is a former a
Dundee cake is a traditional Scottish fruit cake with a rich flavour. The cake is made with currants and almonds; the cake originated in nineteenth-century Scotland, was made as a mass-produced cake by the marmalade company Keiller's marmalade. Keiller's first mass-produced the cake commercially and have been claimed to be the originators of the term "Dundee cake". However, similar fruit cakes were produced across Scotland. A popular story is that Mary Queen of Scots did not like glace cherries in her cakes, so the cake was first made for her, as a fruit cake that used blanched almonds and not cherries; the top of the cake is decorated with concentric circles of almonds. Today, the cakes are sold in supermarkets throughout the United Kingdom; the cake was made and marketed in British India, in independent India after 1947, by Britannia Industries and its successor firms. However, after 1980 the cake was withdrawn from the market though it continued to be supplied as a corporate Christmas gift by the maker.
