Stratford Herald - Sat 9th September
DEATH OF LEVI FOX, FIRST DIRECTOR OF THE SHAKESPEARE BIRTHPLACE TRUST
SCHOLAR Dr Levi Fox, one of Stratford's most ubiquitous figures who
played a pivotal role in the development of the Shakespeare Birthplace
Trust, died on Sunday aged 92.
As director of the trust for 44 years, he was responsible for developing
the charity's education work, records office, museums and gardens
departments and conservation activities. He helped to raise the profile
of the brand significantly, a major landmark of his directorship being
the opening of the Shakespeare Centre in Henley Street in 1964, the
tercentenary of Shakespeare's birth.
