I'm sure I've been told that Louis was a past President. I matriculated in 1970 and was President in Trinity 1972, by which time Louis would have been long gone. Until I asked him about the Young Student sent down, Kevin had forgotten that he wrote it, and had no idea that it had been handed down by successive generations(? matriculations?) of students. The proposal for a Heritage reunited session came out of a pub session in the Half Moon in Oxford on a Friday night in January this year, when the survivors of an OUMM practice (including John Forrest, who'd come over from the US and John Dawson who'd come from Kenya via Bootle) were joined by the survivors of the Oxford folk club (the guests had been Boden and Spiers)in a session organised by Mike Henry, who used to run Irish sessions in the Gardener's Arms in Plantation Road.

As far as I know, there has never been a proper (or even improper) Heritage reunion since the Baker's Arms closed. I think it would be really fun to find out who would turn up for one.
