The McKie Collection

James McKie (sometimes written "M'Kie") was a Kilmarnock-based publisher and collector of Burns material who lived during the 19th century. He gathered a large collection of manuscripts, books, paintings and Burnsiana and was the main fundraiser for the Kilmarnock Burns Monument in Kay Park. His collection was displayed in the museum in the monument. It is now housed by East Ayrshire Council Arts and Museums Service.   A selection of James McKie's books have now been added to FutureMuseum.
