MAY I add to Peter McClintock's obituary of Harry Rosenberg (27 December) a note on his work for the Association of University Teachers? writes John Gillard Watson. Together with the late Frank Pickstock he did much to promote the AUT in Oxford as the proper professional body for dons and other senior university people. As local secretary for some years and a zealous supporter throughout his career, his devotion to the AUT as a pillar of academic freedom has left the profession permanently in his debt.
