Roy Guild was Morgan Academy to the core. From his home in Mains Drive, he spent his formative years at School under the austere gaze of Dr.Leighton. He had a zest for life, particularly in sport. This enthusiasm rubbed off on his many friends and competitors.
He played rugby and tennis for the School and for Midlands. After he returned from the War, he broadened his interests to the F.P.Hockey Club and to fishing, bowls, curling and golf. Even as his health deteriorated he was still seeking golfing inspiration in new clubs.
Professionally, Roy’s artistic leanings had taken him to the Dundee Art College in 1939 and he returned there as a lecturer on his demob. He climbed the ladder to Head of the textile department and design at Duncan of Jordanstone. After retiral in 1983, Roy redeveloped his interest in painting and stained glass design, giving much pleasure to his many friends.
Roy was among the first to join the reformed F.P. Association. He was a strong supporter to the end of F.P. functions and also gave valuable support to the Archives We shall miss his absence greatly and give our support to his wife Betty and their family.
