      Roy Shaw, 1975 and 2011

My father, Roy Shaw, died on 15 May 2012, aged 93.

There was also an obituary in the Daily Telegraph.

In his final year my father wrote a partial draft of an autobiography, which was completed after his death by my mother, Gwen Shaw, and published privately by her under the title ‘Catching the Rope: A Memoir of the Early Years 1918-46’ (2012).

  1. Oliver Kamm says:

    Dear Martin, I didn’t know that Roy Shaw was your father. I think he was an outstanding advocate for the arts and The Arts and the People is an exemplary argument for their importance. My sympathies on your bereavement.
