Susanne, she wasn't "one of the people behind...." -- she was the moving force! When the idea became reality, following her massive donation of LPs, CDs, magazines, pamphlets and articles, many other like-minded people came on board, and the Centre was heavily involved when the Edinburgh International Festival proposed a series of concerts on political song (in the official programme) in 2002.

She was a formidable lady for all sorts of reasons -- her willingness to roll up her sleeves and 'get tore in', both morally and physically; her unswerving sense of what was right, and her tenacity in pursuing it; her delight in a good joke, and her ability to tell one; her loyalty to friends both great and small; her delight in art and classical music; her support of the arts in the face of economic and philistine attacks etc.
The list is long!
