This is a new page which, sadly, informs you about members of our alumni who are no longer with us.
An opportunity for you to pass on your messages of condolence and, on a happier note, to share your memories with the family and reminisce with former students and friends.
We would like you to join us in remembering those, no longer with us, who have touched your lives through the University of Wales, Newport or any of the colleges that made up the University as it is today.
Please add your condolences, memories, and messages to the families on these pages.
Haydn Pugh was a Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design (Printmaking) and taught in Newport Art College/Art Faculty, GCHE from 1957 until 1986.
Sadly, Haydn died of cancer on Thursday 25 September, 2008.
Haydn was one of the few surviving members of the small number of staff responsible for the granting of degree course status to Newport Art College following a crucial inspection by the Coldstream Committee in 1961. Only twenty art schools in England and Wales were granted this status at the time and the present Art Faculty might not exist without the efforts of Haydn and his colleagues.
This sad news was passed to us by Derek Butler, former colleague of Haydn Pugh.
