Obituary - Dr. David Oxlade
Dr. David Oxlade
My father was a teacher at the Prince of Wales School, and during his time there he was
Assistant Housemaster of Grigg and Hawke, Housemaster of Scott, and Second Master
He returned to Brighton, England and died in 1988.
How very interesting and super to hear that the University of Nairobi has a copy of his Ph.D
thesis on the History of the Prince of Wales/Nairobi School, and that you hope to publish it on
this web site in due course. I think I have a copy here somewhere in the attic. I am embarrassed
to say that I have not read it and your email will now spur me on to find it.
him writing it in his study where he spent hours and hours and with wafts of pipe smoke
smelling out the house!
He would be thrilled to know that it was being being put to good use.

Note from Webmaster:
Stephen feels very much an "honorary" Old Cambrian. He comments that, having lived there
for so long and having the run of the school during the holidays - it really was home.
