John Caffrey (1939-2017)
It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the death of John Caffrey.
John was a regular at Bewick Society meetings. We shall miss his good humour, great knowledge and quiet encouragement. His knowledge of Bewick's Birds was second to none. An enthusiast for the books of Henry David Thoreau, he was delighted to find connections between the American writer and the Northumberland engraver.
