We announce the sad news that Eddie Dawes, our former Chairman, died on Friday 3rd March after having been admitted to hospital with pneumonia. His two sons were with him. He was 97.
An outstanding scientist, a national figure in the Magic Circle (and prolific writer on the history of magic) and the founding chairman of the Larkin Society, he had exceptional gifts that he wore lightly. For 25 years, he and Anthony Thwaite as President led the Society together with a sure and confident vision.
We will honour their memory.
