Dr David Pattison

4th September 2018


The College was very sad to learn that Dr David Pattison passed away on Monday 3rd September at the age of 76.

David Pattison was born in 1942. He became a Tutorial Fellow in Spanish at Magdalen in 1969. He held this post until his retirement in 2005 when he became an Emeritus Fellow.

Dr Pattison held a number of College Offices including Junior (1971) and Senior (1972) Dean of Arts, Senior Bursar (1983-5) and Vice-President (1999-2000). In the University he was appointed Reader in 1997 and Chairman of the Modern Languages Faculty Board (1995-1996).

Our thoughts are with his wife June and family at this sad time.

A funeral service will be held at Magdalen College Chapel on Wednesday 26th September 2018 at 3.00pm.
