Abstract

It is a measure of the man that, amongst the many friends who mourn his passing, there are some whose friendship grew on the basis of quite slight and infrequent contact. I am one of them, communicating more by letter than by word of mouth. At first our correspondence was rather formal, being often that between editor and tardy contributor. I am ashamed to say that this aspect persisted, though not with respect to the same contribution, up to his last letter which had a mild reminder as postscript. It is not difficult to feel shame, rather more difficult to cure its cause. I always wondered at the way in which he not only conducted the managing editorship of Journal of Documentation in his quiet, humane, scholarly, and efficient way, but also managed to readin itself no mean taskand clarify collective and international publications in reviews for it.
