It is with the greatest regret that we have to announce the death of our co-editor, Alderman Edward Windeatt, Mayor of Totnes, who passed away in his sleep on Saturday June 4th, aged 74. He was serving his fifth period of office as Mayor, and had been previously for 23 years Town Clerk, and was actively associated with municipal affairs for 45 years. As President of the Devonshire Association, he recently received the Prince of Wales when he visited Ralegh's birthplace at Hayes Barton during his Devonshire tour. Mr Windeatt had been a member of the Devon County Council from its formation, and was a County Alderman. He had been one of the editors of this periodical for 12 years. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. EDS.
