In Memoriam - Professor Whitestick

Everyone in QAC's Sight Village Team was shocked and saddened by the news that Douglas Hutchison, aka Professor Whitestick, died following an incident outside his home in London, shortly after the 2012 Sight Village London Roadshow. An 18 year old German national was arrested.

As a prolific blogger on the Arts and visual impairment issues we are aware that his final blog, posted on the day before he died, was a report of his visit to our show. The Professor was a regular Sight Village visitor over a number of years. Always recognisable by his jaunty hats and eponymous white stick, no London Sight Village was complete until he had made an appearance.

We will miss him in November when we return to Kensington Town Hall, may he rest in peace
