A Tale of Three Cities: Max Watson Commemoration

A Tale of Three Cities: Max Watson Commemoration

21 October 2015

On 16-17 October two linked events were held to commemorate the life and work of Max Watson. The first, in St Antony’s College, was jointly arranged by PEFM and SEESOX and covered his career under the title “A Tale of Three Cities”. Tributes were heard from those who knew him and his work in Washington, Brussels and Oxford, covering his time with the IMF, the European Commission, The Bank of Ireland and the University. It built up a full picture of Max and his many achievements. The second was organised by the family and in particular his widow Janny in Dorchester Abbey, close to Max’s house. This concentrated rather more on his life and interests; but continued to build up the story of his multi-facetted career as well.
