Ethel & Owen Powell

Keele World Affairs will always be closely associated with Owen Powell who, ably supported by his wife Ethel, founded it in 1980 as a series of adult education meetings addressed by guest speakers.

He continued to organise and chair almost all of the meetings for a period of 30 years and this page carries links to the many people he touched.

Ethel died in March 2014 aged 98 and Owen died in February 2015 aged 94.
