Arthur Seldon, Co-Founder of the IEA, died on the 11th October.
In my early days at the CRCE, based at the IEA, I was frequently
asked to help Arthur Seldon with his photocopying; because my desk
was by the photocopier!
He was delightful, and I enjoyed our chats as the machine trundled
out the copies. Arthurs parents had been born in Russia, and
he was always interested in the work of the CRCE. When we ran a
writing and journalism course for young Russians, Arthur was an
enthusiastic teacher. John Raybould wrote from Canada, to tell me
that Hayek had appreciated Arthurs tough editing.
We send most sincere condolences to his family.
