Morton Peto

Post by michael scuffil » Wed Nov 01, 2017 8:37 am

I see from The Old Blue that Morton Peto has died, at what must have been a ripe old age. He was my first French teacher in 1955, and didn't strike me as being particularly young even then, and he was already a senior housemaster. I didn't have much to do with him after that, until I applied to leave the CCF, of which he was the head (reluctantly, I'm told, because no one else would take the job). He wasn't an intellectual heavyweight, but I liked him as far as I knew him.

I’m not sure we can discuss this. Even if Peto is de facto and legally dead, I think all sorts of due process probably needs to be concluded before we can start talking about it on an open forum. We should wait until the new Head writes an dull and platitudinous statement about the issue. It is however important that we establish a channel for those who may have been affected by his death in some way, but this needs to be in the hands of appropriately trained experts.

This thread should be locked.
