Memorial meeting for Edward H Milligan (Ted)

Ted Milligan group of 3-web

Saturday 2 April at 14:00 at Friends House, London

A meeting for worship to give thanks for the life of our dear Friend, Ted Milligan. A ‘birthright’ Quaker, Ted was known and loved throughout Britain and Ireland Yearly Meetings, for his good counsel and empathy and extraordinary recall for past ministry and conversations. Ted was regarded with affection by Irish Friends, and travelling under concern, much appreciated for his capacity to listen.

A natural historian, Ted read English and philosophy at Reading, completing a postgraduate course in librarianship at UCL. Trainee-librarianship at Dr Williams’s Library was followed by nearly thirty years as Librarian of London Yearly Meeting, showing ‘exceptional administrative flair’. Serving the Society on many Quaker committees, often as clerk, Ted had a fifty-year connection with Berks & Oxon Regional Meeting, believing in its spiritual value and potential for building friendships. Ted’s enthusiasm for the Society of Friends and knowledge of its history led to many requests for his gifted public speaking.

Widely published on Quaker matters, Ted’s major work, A biographical dictionary of Quakers in commerce and industry, 1775-1920, led to an honorary doctorate from Lancaster University, which he was proud to receive.
