Peter Jarvis
Shared by Professor John Holford: 

Dear friends and colleagues,

It is with deep sadness that I write to let you know that my colleague, friend and teacher, Peter Jarvis, died this morning. As many of you will know, he had been ill for some time, and his last few months have been particularly difficult. Peter was an enthusiastic adult educator, an outstanding teacher and scholar, a great servant of the University of Surrey, a Methodist minister, good company – and above all, a warm and steadfast friend. Also among the many achievements with which he has enriched us are dozens of books, the International Journal of Lifelong Education (which he co-founded, and edited for 35 years), and the deeply humane and democratic theories of human learning and its social significance that he developed and shared.

I spoke to Maureen, his wife, this afternoon and she has asked me to share the sad news with Peter’s many friends, colleagues and former students. Many, of course, I do not know or have lost touch with, so please do speak about it with them, and with members of the adult education community which he valued so much. Details of his funeral will be available later.

John.

I met Dr. Jarvis in 2008 when he received the Cyril O Houle Award for his book entitled Globalisation, Lifelong Learning and The Learning Society – Sociological Perspectives. I was a student and I took a picture with him and another professor. He was witty and pragmatic. He provided me with honest feedback of my writing. His work in the areas of experiential learning, lifelong learning and learning society greatly contributed to the field of adult education.
