The Robert Graves Society's warm congratulations are due to Dr Paul O'Prey, the Society's Vice-President for Europe, on his appointment as Rector and Chief Executive of Roehampton, part of the federal University of Surrey, England.



Paul, who is presently Director of Academic Affairs at the University of Bristol, will take up his post September 2004, by which time Roehampton hopes to have become an independent university. He will at that point become Vice-Chancellor of the new university. Further details are published on Roehampton's website at http://www.roehampton.ac.uk/about/newrector.asp.

Roehampton already has strong Gravesian links: Robert Graves was born only a short distance away from its campus, at Amy and Alfred's home close to Wimbledon Common, and there are still family connections to the area today. Also, the proposed new university will inherit a strong tradition of courses in several fields of the arts, humanities, and social sciences that are relevant to 'Graves Studies' and have been built up at Roehampton over the past 150 years.

Paul has already offered the campus as the venue for a future Robert Graves international conference: 'Wimbledon 200?! But it's unlikely to co-incide with the tennis....

Paul intends to continue his interest in Robert Graves studies and the Society and he and Pilar are looking forward to attending the forthcoming Robert Graves Conference in Paris, 6-10 July, 2004.
