Newsletter Quotes: February 2006

From: “Ian Robertson”

RODFORD BARRAT:
Sadly we have just heard of the death of Ian Robertson on January 1st.

Ian’s name went onto the Men’s page (then called Old Boys) over three years ago when there were only about four or five names on it. He wrote me an e-mail with such enthusiasm it was a joy to read. And I remember his encouraging words with a grateful thanks.

In the early days of the newsletter he also sent in some interesting comments and will not be forgotten. His entry on the site read:

IAN ROBERTSON
National Ballet of Canada, 1950s
London’s Festival Ballet, 1960s
Walter Gore’s London Ballet, 1960s
Les Grand Ballets Classiques de France, 1960s
Ballets International de Paris, 1960s
Zurich Opera Ballet, 1960s
The Music Man
Princess Pocahontas
both in London’s West End; and appearances on BBC TV, 1960s

It is sad to transfer yet another name onto the In Memoriam page.
