As heir to the current Chief, Lord Andrew Elgin,11th Earl of Elgin & 15th Earl of Kincardine, KT, CD, JP, DL, as well as in his own right, Lord Bruce is tireless in his support of Scotland's heritage, arts and culture - both in Scotland and internationally.

In the past 65 years the ASF has become a leading voice within our Scottish American community, supporting and amplifying our shared love of Scotland, its heritage and its culture - following the mission set out by our founder Lord Malcolm Douglas Hamilton that the American Scottish Foundation be a bridge between the United States and Scotland - the mission remains as it was then.

The American-Scottish Foundation®, established in 1956 by Lord Malcolm Douglas-Hamilton, is an international not-for-profit organization, that looks to establish links and strengthen ties between Scotland and the United States, through the pursuit of contemporary social, cultural, educational, and business activities.

The mission remains as relevant today as when ASF was founded - to champion the extraordinary relationship between the peoples of Scotland and the United States - a bridge between the two great countries - seeking to strengthen & support the future of the Scottish American diaspora, and its legacy.

The Wallace Award®s evening benefits the ongoing work of the Foundation and allows ASF to further our mission of strengthening ties between Scotland and the United States through the pursuit of contemporary social, cultural, educational and business activities. It is the most significant event for the ASF during the year and the selection of Honorees is done with much thought and deliberation.
