In memoriam Harry Pepp

The university is sad to announce the death of former lecturer Harry Pepp.

Professor Roger Webster writes:

“Harry Pepp taught at LJMU, Liverpool Polytechnic, C.F. Mott College of Higher Education and Ethel Wormald College for over thirty years. Prior to that he taught in schools in Liverpool including Merchant Taylors in Crosby.

“His undergraduate studies were at Temple College, Philadelphia followed by a MA in English at Sheffield University where he met his wife, Irene. Whilst at LJMU he was a senior member of the English programme, and then in the newly created School of Media, Critical and Creative Arts became responsible for developing a range of partnerships with educational, media, creative and cultural institutions using his networking skills – both in the UK and internationally. He was particularly involved in developing the Centre for American Studies.

“Harry was highly regarded and very much liked by both staff colleagues and students, willing to listen and offer sound advice: he was always very friendly and sociable. He will be much missed.”
