Durham was crucial for me...you would sit at dinner next to a Physician, a Musician, people from other subject areas and talk. There was a collision of all different disciplines. By talking, you were already better educated.

Harry cast an immense shadow and his spirit hovers today, stronger than ever. Talent drew alongside and thrived under his leadership; alchemy simply unfurled. Harry’s boundless curiosity, dogged determination and unwavering courage made one feel deeply human and proud. Our family and everyone involved with this initiative believes it will attract and inspire individuals who truly believe in the future of journalism. Harry could never have wished for a finer narrative.
