A warm welcome from former ODU Secretary

Visitors to The Mitre

Dr Murray has been overwhelmed by all the well wishes since his appointment as ODU Ambassador.  A special visitor came in person to congratulate him.  Brian de Kock (1952O) was at the Mitre to shake his hand and wish him well in his new role. Paul subsequently reminisced about the time when Brian de Kock, Paul Dobson (House Director of School House) Gerlald Alanthwaite (Gray House, PM 1948), and John Gardener (1947G), Bishops' 11th Principal were the last members of the Latin Department at Bishops.  Fond memories indeed.
