Alan attended St. John’s College (Johannesburg) and Rhodes University
(Grahamstown), where he became the first student to be awarded a triple
first in the humanities (English, History and Music). While a student
he performed in musical and theatrical productions, co-edited the
fortnightly student paper, and edited the College’s official journal,
The Rhodean. He joined the South African Army in 1942, was stationed in
Egypt and Italy, married Hope Barrable in Cairo, and in 1946 returned
to Johannesburg to work as journalist on The Star. He was awarded a
Rhodes Scholarship, completed a degree in English at Wadham College,
Oxford, UK and returned with his family to South Africa in 1950. He
held faculty positions in English at Rhodes University, at the
University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, and from 1962 to 1969
at the University of New England in Armidale, Australia. Throughout
these years he combined his academic career with producing and
performing in theatrical productions. In 1969 he joined the English
Department at Memorial University, St. John’s, Newfoundland, where he
contributed to the cultural life of the community: as chair of RCA
board, adjudicator of Arts and Letters awards, member of the Library
Association of NL, creator of school broadcasts, part-time actor for
CBC and as engaged and discriminating audience for countless concerts,
films, and plays. He created fine furniture and memorable bread, beer,
bobootie and lemon ice cream for family and friends. An inspiring
teacher, he was sought out by many former students years after they
took his classes. He retired in 1986 and married Phyllis Artiss in
1989. Throughout his life he traveled widely, whenever feasible taking
in theatrical productions while visiting friends. He played squash
regularly and competitively until a few years ago, when he turned
instead to yoga, and remained a keen walker until the last day of his
life. He had an eclectic taste in books and an intimate relationship
with his library. He was a generous benefactor to many social,
cultural, educational, environmental and political causes. Alan will be
remembered for his wisdom, integrity, kindness, wit and precise,
fastidious use of English. A celebration of his life will take place at
the D. F. Cook Recital Hall, Memorial University, on Sunday, September
16 at 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alan Hall
