Frank Willett passes

We have received word that Frank Willett, CBE, FRSE and former director of the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery, passed away on June 15, 2006 at the age of 80.

We did not know Professor Willetts but we were educated about African tribal art by his research and writings. We are grateful for his time spent in the field and making us all wiser about his subject and saddened to hear of his passing. We extend our condolences to his family and friends.
