Just remembering Roy Jenkins

He died seven years ago, but something brought his memory to mind, so I looked, again, at his obituary, which you can read, below, if you are prepared to read about the most productive, well-educated, broadly knowledgeable person in the world, who also wrote more than 20 books, including biographies of numerous British Prime Ministers.  I had the good fortune to meet him at the Churchill Memorial at Westminster College. One word - "staggered." Another word - "awe-struck."

Lord Jenkins of Hillhead
