John Rogers, Professor of the History of Philosophy Emeritus at Keele, was presented with a Festschrift to mark his 70th birthday at a reception in Stewart House, Institute of Philosophy, Russell Square, London University.  The book is titled Studies on Locke: Sources, Contemporaries, and Legacy, edited by
Sarah Hutton and Paul Schuurman.  Ex-students and colleagues came from Japan, the United States, Italy and the Netherlands, as well as from all over the UK, to be present at the event that followed a conference, which honoured John’s achievements.  His wife, Jo, who was secretary of the Keele Society for many years, was also present.  John is the Founder-Editor of The British Journal for the History of Philosophy, which is still published from Keele, and is now in its sixteenth year. Many of his publications relate to John Locke and other seventeenth-century philosophers.
