On behalf of the Board of the National Institute for the Humanities and the Social Sciences, we wish to express our undying admiration of the work and life of Phil Bonner.
Just speaking to each other as board members in the last few days conjured up a wonderful human being: mentor, head of department, historian, comrade, teacher, friend, neighbour, brilliant academic and humanist.
Most importantly, his work endures and will outlast us all. We lower our heads but the memory of his smile and patience fuels our conviction: another world is possible.
The memorial service will be streamed live at 18h00 at https://www.youtube.com/user/WitsWebmaster/featured
