The Wedgwood world-wide community has lost a great member recently. Keith was a powerful force in the Wedgwood International Seminar for many years, directing our Seminars, making superb arrangements, encouraging collectors and editing and publishing the Seminar Proceedings for many years. Here is the announcement received today from friend Lynn Miller, retired Curator at the Wedgwood Museum in Barlaston:
"I returned this afternoon from my mother's to a most unexpected email
me that Keith McLeod had died suddenly on fourth December. We knew he had
ill for many years, and that recently he had to move into a home to receive
and attention. As a gentleman who lived independently for so many
years, traveling the world and being an intrepid traveler, this must have
tiresome for him. I understand that he was active until the end, and had
traveling to hear a concert when he was taken ill, probably from a stroke,
that he passed away in hospital.
His love of all things Wedgwood, and his support of the Museum and Wedgwood
International Seminar will long be remembered, and I know that his friends
colleagues world wide will miss him greatly. I know I will."
Keith was a big help to me in preparing the two lectures I gave at WIS seminars for publication; his view of American university format for end-notes and mine were often at loggerheads, and he usually won because HE was the Editor! He will indeed be missed. Thank you to Alan Erickson for forwarding this message.
