Farewell to Barry Ronge

South Africa was sad to learn of the passing of well-known film and entertainment critic and print and broadcast journalist Barry Ronge. Barry was renowned for being bravely outspoken and was internationally respected for his wit and intellect. What is less widely known is that Barry taught English and Afrikaans at St John’s College from 1969 to 1971.
