The premature death of Professor Colin Webb on 22 March 1992 came as a shock to the community of South African historians. He was friend to many of us and known to almost all. His wise advice helped along not just his numerous postgraduate students (6 Ph.D.s and 17 M.A.s, not to mention a great number of Honours mini-thesis writers), but was also freely given to many colleagues. The tolerance and sound common sense that he brought to positions such as President of the South African Historical Society in 1983 and the bonds that his professional approach and easy humour forged between the historians of South African universities - and wider afield - will not be soon forgotten.
