 School News

We have learned, with regret, that Michael Lewis passed away some 25 years ago.

A wonderful obituary appeared in the middle pages of Tuesday 22nd January Scotsman, extolling the life of John Bartholomew, one of three brothers who ran the acclaimed Edinburgh mapmaking company founded in 1784 by an ancestor, George Bartholomew. John was the Cartographic director, and every one of the F Ps has had to use a map from that Company over the years. All of his five sons, John Eric, Philip, Christopher, Patrick, and Ivon were at Scotus. We offer our condolences, although, on reading his obituary, he seemed to have had a very long, successful and happy life, and we are sure his sons will have been immensely proud of his achievements.

E-mail contacts have been made with Julian Lewis, in France, and David Gardner, in Oundle, East Northamptonshire.

Contact addresses have been obtained for Hugh Ronaldson, in Bo’ness, and James Gardner, in Dewsbury.

We have been advised that Paul Gardner is living in California.
