"Eton of the North"[edit]

First of all, I don't know who this person is. So by no mean of disrespect to him or fellow wiki editors of this page --- I disagree with the fact that "Eton of the North" is a title or nickname to Glenalmond College and it's being added here. I know it's in his obituary but that doesn't mean it's the correct term and to be added to here in the article. In fact, I have the following links/citations (1 also came from the "Scotsman") to show that it's usually referred to another school in Scotland.

It seems that both Fettes and Glenalmond have been so described, then. Perhaps the term was more applied to Glenalmond in the past but is more commonly applied to Fettes now? Anyway, it's obviously not really significant in the context of the current article, so I am context to let the expression be omitted. JH (talk page) 09:27, 15 December 2007 (UTC)
