in memoriam - Kenneth Owen Arvidson was a local man and, one is driven to suspect, knew everyone and everything of the wider Waikato region. Born in Hamilton, Ken became a member of the English Department at Waikato University in 1974 where we were lucky enough to keep him for 28 years and more. He maintained his interest and connections with the scholarly business of the university during his retirement and will be sadly missed by friends and colleagues throughout New Zealand and beyond.
