Obituary: Clive Labovitch
Tuesday 19 April 1994
Later, I met him again when he was the leading publisher of careers directories - and, as Robert Heller points out, the innovator in this field. We remained in friendly contact for the next 30 years. Last year, he contributed a chapter to Graduate Recruitment: a 25-year retrospective. It was typical of him: informed, reflective, witty. The title of the chapter - a resume of the history of careers publishing that describes the enormous growth in it since his Directory of Opportunites for Graduates (DOG) appeared in 1956 - perfectly reflects his wry self-deprecation. It is 'The Dog that Died'.
Quiet, never bombastic, never the obvious publishing tycoon, he was an original thinker, always full of excellent ideas, genuinely committed to his projects, and showing a sensitivity and warmth in personal contact that made him quite simply a good person to know.
