Painting commemorates old colleagues

Guardian journalist Martin Kettle presented a painting purchased by friends and colleagues of his parents, Arnold and Margot Kettle to the University on March 22. The painting, Raiders Overhead by Emmanuel Levy, was purchased by a group wishing to commemorate the late Margot Kettle, who established the African Studies Library, and her husband Arnold Kettle, a Senior Lecturer in the English Department who died in 1987. The Kettles were active in the campaign to establish the Leeds Playhouse. The painting, chosen for its emphasis on 'the presence of man', now hangs in the Brotherton Library.
