As Minister for Magic
McLaird rose to the office of Minister for Magic of Great Britain sometime before 1980. He was quite a talented wizard, but was considered something of an eccentric, as he liked to communicate by puffing smoke from the tip of his wand.
Behind the scenes
- Luna Lovegood may have named her son — Lorcan Scamander — after this man, probably in admiration for his eccentricity.
- Pottermore (Mentioned only)
