John Barton receives his Honorary Fellowship
11th May 2017
The 2016 recipient of the BSA Honorary Fellowship Award was John Barton. Unfortunately, due to illness, John was unable to attend the Honorary Fellowship Event, held as the climax of the BSA’s Conference last year at the University of Hull.
It was only recently that circumstances came together sufficiently for the BSA to present the Honorary Fellowship commemorative wooden sculpture – together with a book containing the many tributes paid and photographs – to John in person.
Our photographs below show John receiving the tokens from Andrew Jarvis, BSA Trustee and Chair of the Fellowship Committee, at his home in London, on Friday May 5th 2017.
