Vale Gordon Ogilvie

This obituary from the weekend's Press pays fitting tribute to the late Gordon Ogilvie.

Gordon was a wonderful man and a fine author who contributed in particular to a lively recording of Canterbury history. 

I had the privilege of working with him on a couple of books including an update of The Riddle of Richard Pearse, and he was a generous adviser in work on place names. 

Gordon's last book, Place Names of Banks Peninsula and the Port Hills, was published in August and is available from good bookstores or the Canterbury University Press website.
