At the Education Ministry: An Official’s View

  • Maurice Kogan


Our thinking about Edward Boyle’s contribution to society, the width of his sympathies and interests, his unobtrusive command over so many complex and important aspects of national life, is still clouded by the early loss of a personality so compelling and magnanimous. The charm, generosity and capacity for friendship that so many experienced were in fact an integral part of Boyle’s capacity to affect the wider scene. His influence was moral and charismatic as much as specific and direct.
