While I never met him personally, I want to express my sadness at the recent death of a former Publishing Director of the IEA, Walter Allan.
Walter was a great man and by all accounts was one of the funniest people ever to work in this organisation. With endless stories of his roguish and outrageous humour, his boundless energy and his exuberant love of life, I know that loved ones and friends alike will be greatly saddened at this tragic and early loss.
Still only in his 50s, he was a larger than life character with an infectious wit. Always the life and soul of any party, he was also a formidably hard working and talented writer, editor and teacher. At this time of sorrow and reflection, my heart goes out to all his family and friends.
