The college was deeply saddened by the sudden
death this term of Michael Taylor, our Head Porter. Mike had been with us since 1992, and became
a much-loved (even iconic) figure in college life. He was generally the first person visitors
and freshers met; and upheld the dignity of his position without ever losing
his sense of humour at the occasional absurdities of lodge life. He is survived by his wife Pat, daughter
Juli, son Joe and granddaughter Annabel.
