BRUCE A. CLARK - news of Bruce's passing on 14th August 2019 has been received with great sadness. Our North American coordinator of Six of One for 36 years was a lifelong fan of Patrick McGoohan and had contact with the actor over many years, also sending him all of the society mailings. A remembrance of Bruce will appear in our October mailing. Bruce enjoyed collecting material and memorabilia about Danger Man/Secret Agent and The Prisoner. He attended some of the society's conventions in Portmeirion, North Wales. Bruce was responsible for finding the 'alternative' Arrival and The Chimes of Big Ben episodes. He also worked with US companies on releases of video and DVD products, including writing liner notes. Bruce was an enthusiastic supporter of Prisoner appreciation and made many friends over the years, around the world. He started the society's first website in 1997 and wrote articles for Six of One's mailings. He will be much missed by all who knew him. Opposite: Bruce summer 2019; Portmeirion 1986, being interviewed for the German documentary Rund um Big Ben.
Catherine McGoohan has sent her condolences: "Bruce and I exchanged emails after my father passed away. My daughter Sarah also met with Bruce and she has fond memories of that visit. I know Bruce was dedicated to the society and getting the word out to fans. I spoke to Sarah and she added that Bruce was one of the kindest people she ever met. He was so committed to the history of her grandfather and it was an important passion for him. Catherine's message has been passed to Bruce's family and is reproduced with her kind permission.
