We are saddened to learn of the death of Gerald - Gerry - Bowden, a former longstanding Governor of the Walcot Foundation. He was 84.
Gerry's service to the Foundation was extensive and significant. Altogether he served as a Governor for 40 years, retiring in 2014. His approach to the finances and investments of the Foundation over those years helped increase our capacity as a grantmaker. We owe him a great deal. His wikipedia entry may be viewed here
