Remembering Peregrine Worsthorne

November 27, 2021

It is painful to lose a friend to an accident, as occurred recently to Dr. Angelo Codevilla. But sadness comes also with the death of those we knew and some we knew only by reading their books or opinion essays.

One of these latter was Sir Peregrine Gerard Worsthorne whom I knew only by reading his columns in the Daily Telegraph of London.

Like many American political conservatives today Worsthorne wrote of his country in 1997 “this is not a country I recognise or am particularly fond of any more.”

If you are interested, you may want to read his In Defence of Aristocracy published in England in 2004 by Harper/Collins.
