Matthew Smith, 2006

Matthew Smith 1879 – 1959

20 April – 26 May 2006

“A friendship began between Matthew, aged 62, and me, aged 25, and that friendship flourished over all the years until he died. We went to Paris together many times and the great age gap between us seemed to make no difference. We went to many places and he taught me many things that I would never otherwise have learned and I shall always feel immeasurably privilaged to have been allowed to share a small bit of his life.”

— Roald Dahl
