Brian is Dead but Not that Brian

Dear friends,

It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the recent passing away of Dr.
Brian Fegan.

Brian was a dynamic figure for some 40 years in Philippine studies; a scholar
who was unfathomable about rice growing in particular, about which he wrote his
extensive thesis, as well as many other anthropological/cultiural aspects of
Philippine society.

Brian was admired by all who came to know him, and not simply for his remarkable
fluency in Tagalog. In the last 10 or so years he was employed as a consultant
on Philippine matters by international and Australian organizations, and,
knowing Brian, he was adept at his tasks, and told it as it was.

Brian had been suffering from asbestos induced illness for several years, and
died quietly in his sleep, always optimistic to the end.

With all sincerity, we will miss Brian and is indomitable character and profound
experience and guidance.
