The fifties saw a vital phase of classical scholarship in South Africa, initiated and maintained by a generation of South African born scholars who studied in Europe, mostly at Oxford and Leiden. Back in South Africa they proceeded to establish a local tradition of classical scholarship. The Classical Association of South Africa, founded in 1956, and the proceedings of the association, the international journal, Acta Classica, are amongst their achievements. A founding member of this association, Charles (Charl) August van Rooy, passed away on Wednesday, 15th July 1998.
