Last month we were informed, along with the world, of the sad passing of Tony Barrow an Old Boy of the school who was also the Press Officer for the Beatles. Tony was born on May 11th 1936 and attended Merchant Taylors’ Boys’ School in the 1940’s.
The article below is an interview with Tony Barrow produced by our pupils for a school magazine which was produced and edited by Tim Quinn in 2010. It was part of the School’s weekly Gifted and Talented Extension (GTX) programme. The boys wrote the questions, and Tim carried out the interview with Tony via email. Tony himself provided the photographs.
Tony passed away on the 14th May 2016. Our thoughts are with his family.
