Title:Bring on the Music - A Life in the Law, Arts and Community
Published by Steele Roberts Aotearoa, Wellington, 2002, 120 pages. During World War II Dick Simpson served as aide-de-camp to General Alexander, Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in the Middle East. From North Africa he wrote to his wife Cecil, whom he had married weeks before leaving for war: "The suffering of the present will in the future give us a finer appreciation of each other and of life. So away with due care and bring on the music and song!" So it proved. Dick came back from war to a long and successful marriage, a leading career in the law, and a wide range of eminent roles in education, community service and the arts. This memoir captures the background and many of the highlights of the life and career of an outstanding New Zealander.
