The dedication of a memorial plaque to John Paul Jones, father of the United States Navy, took plate at the cottage where he was born, now a museum to him, on the Arbigland Estate near Kirkbean on July 30th, 1953.

The event was attended by Vice Admiral Jerauld Wright of the U.S. Navy, The Hon. Winthrop Aldrich, U.S. Ambassador to Britain and The Secretary of State for Scotland. The invocation was given by Rev. W Dunbar Allan. This is an original programme marking the event.
