President remembered

  • Comment

A good turn-out at the riba to remember former president Fred Pooley who died earlier this year. Wine and reminiscences flowed, and some welcome fades from the past reminded you of riba Council in the good old days. Colonel Seifert hobnobbed with old pals, while Norman Royce pondered the role of the adjudicator ('I'm sticking to arbitration, old boy'). Former institute secretary Patrick Harrison was on good form; he is busy on a conversion scheme to a magnificent property in Edinburgh, designed by Richard Murphy. It must be good - the neighbours are already complaining. Fred would have approved.
