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.
