Mohamed Adel Farid
Egyptian stalwart: We very much regret to have to announce that Mohamed Adel Farid (ESC 495), of Doqqi, Cairo, who suffered a massive brain haemorrhage while acting as Commissioner for Egypt at the Essen international exhibition in May, passed away in Cairo yesterday (Oct 12). Dr Adel Farid, a former President of the Philatelic Society of Egypt, was for several years FIP and FEPA representative and head of the PSE exhibitions committee, and remained on the Board of Directors and the committee producing the L’Orient Philatelique magazine. A medical doctor in his sixties, he was a keen collector and had exhibited early Egyptian Air Mails with gold-medal success at international level. He was very much the driving force behind the Egyptian society, always full of ideas and propositions, and did much to ensure the successful planning of the Circle’s last full-scale visit to Egypt. We offer our sincere condolences to his family and to members of the Egyptian society: Dr Adel Farid will be very much missed.
