Death of son of College Founder

17 November 2016

St Antony’s College is sad to announce the passing of Antonin Besse Senior, the son of the College’s founder, Antonin Besse at the age of 89.

Tony as he was fondly known will be missed by many and was known for his philanthropic work; particularly as patron and honorary vice-president of United World College which he helped found in 1962.

Full details of his and his family’s extraordinary life can be found on the UWC’s website here
