    From Aberdeen Press and Journal - Wednesday 13 September 1922
    Group of women in white caps and uniforms “From the University her Majesty passed across the roadway to Katherine's Club, where she inspected the training class work of unemployed girls . . . The girls undergoing training in the classes at St Katherine’s Club were simply charmed by her Majesty's visit. Some of them might have thought of the Queen as a personage unapproachable in the majesty and dignity of her position, but although her Majesty's stay was only of a few minutes' duration, they found that she was first a woman and then a Queen. Their appreciation of the Royal visit was shown by the unconventional way in which, on a hint from the Marchioness of Aberdeen, they followed the Queen into the street and gave her a hearty farewell cheer. The singing of "Will ye no come back again ?" was also suggested by the Marchioness.”

    Planting of tree: “The second event of note of the day in the Royal programme was the opening of the Rowett Institute, a few miles out of Aberdeen. Here the wonderful research work in connection with animal nutrition was explained to the Queen, who planted a commemorative tree with silver spade and was presented with a key of gold.”
