A report from Michael Vizard, Course Director, 2006 -16:
We are very sad to hear that Dr Peter Tatham died on 6th May.
His funeral is at 2pm on Friday 26th May at St Peter’s church, Cornworthy, Devon.
Peter, a medical doctor and Jungian analyst, was director of the Trust’s summer course for many of its early years, probably from its inception. He was a charismatic leader with an authority which he carried with an exemplary lightness of touch. As a lecturer, he was inspirational, a man of considerable intellect and wisdom. For a time, he wrote a weekly article for the Guardian in which he applied analytical psychology to everyday experience.
Peter had a fascination with Daedelus, the master craftsman of Greek mythology, leading to the publication of his book The Making of Maleness: Men, Women, and the Flight of Daedelus (Karnac Books 1992).
He was a special friend and an especially strong supporter of the Champernowne Trust.
Our deepest sympathy goes to Peter’s wife, Lena, and his two daughters.
