Annie Cameron

Annie Isabella Cameron (1897-1973) was a Scottish historian.

She was the daughter of Mary Sinclair, and James Cameron, a Glasgow engineer. She studied history at the University of Glasgow and the University of St Andrews. She wrote a doctoral thesis on Bishop Kennedy of St Andrews.

She worked at the Scottish Record Office and in 1938 married George Dunlop, proprietor of the Kilmarnock Standard.[1]

She died in 1973.

Marcus Merriman, a historian of the Rough Wooing acknowledged Annie Cameron, Marguerite Wood, and Gladys Dickinson for their work publishing 16th-century primary sources. He praised Cameron for her "stunning" edition of the Scottish correspondence of Mary of Guise, "placing in the hands of the researcher something formidably useful."[2]
