Professor Keith CowlingFriday 24 Jun 2016
University colleagues will be saddened to hear of the death on 16th June 2016 of Professor Keith Cowling, a longstanding member of the Economics Department but also an important figure in the University of Warwick and in the public sphere more generally.
Michael Shattock, never one to scatter praise wildly;
In addition to playing a central role in the early strength of the Economics Department through his publications but also his dynamism and forcefulness in securing several key professorial appointments, Keith served for a total of 21 years on Senate, had several terms on Estimates and Grants Committee, also served on Finance and General Purposes, Academic Policy Committee and various others, and had a period as Chair of Faculty Board and took his turn as Chair of the Department.
