Columnist dies

March 19, 2004

Patrick Nuttgens, the first director of Leeds Polytechnic and a Times Higher columnist for much of the 1980s, died this week aged 74 after a long battle with multiple sclerosis. An architect and conservationist, Dr Nuttgens was the first academic appointed to York University and became a key influence in its development.
