James Semple Kerr 1932-2014

Friday 17 October 2014

Dr James Semple Kerr died on Wednesday. Today I have spent a little time with the biography he wrote of Joan, his wife and part­ner. It was a pleasure to read it again​—​sad, but still a plea­sure because it is so imbued with Jim’s wry ob­ser­va­tion and clarity of thought. I can hear his voice as I read it.
