First Paragraph

In my capacity as Chairman of the Society I attended the service of thanksgiving for the life and work of Sir Hugh Casson CH KCVO and his wife Lady Casson at St Paul's Cathedral on Monday 29th November 1999. Sir Hugh, the famous architect and artist and former President of the Royal Academy, was a Vice-President of the George MacDonald Society, as was his wife. Lady Casson nee Margaret (Reta) MacDonald Troup, a great-niece of George MacDonald and younger sister of our founder member and long-standing Committee Member Winifred (Freda) Levson, died just two weeks before the date arranged for her husband's memorial service. In the event it became a joint one.
