Prince of wails

  • Comment

Peace and quiet on the Prince's Institute front? Well, not exactly. While former director and then summer school director Richard John continues to haggle with the omnipotent lawyers over the terms of his departure, last week saw the resignation of the registrar - the second to go in 15 months. Meanwhile it transpires that foundation course director Hugh Petter, who resigned in February and also left last week having worked out his notice, could have thrown in the towel even earlier. When it was suggested by the new regime some weeks before that his staff budget should be halved (the foundation course accounts for more than half the students, but with only 10 per cent of the budget) he said he would resign on the spot. The Institute rapidly backed off. It makes you wonder where all the money goes. Now Petter can devote all his energy to being Robert Adam's London partner, based in Savile Row. They are well suited.
