My name is Jun Ikeda, ISB class of '83, a Japanese national living
I just browsed through your website and thought I might want to
add an info of the former ISB faculty member who passed away.
His name was Timothy E. Keating. I don't know the exact year he
came to teach at ISB but I believe it was late 70's and he taught
photography and was also responsible for publishing of the year
book, Erawan, until he left to teach at American school in Egypt
in 1982. He also taught at an American school in Teheran, Iran,
till the Islamic Revolution that brought Ayatollah Khomeini in power
and US embassy hostage crisis there so that was the year he came
to teach at ISB.
He died in early 1990 and I learned of his death from his sister
in Pennsylvania. I don't remember his age when he died but he was
in his early 50's. I have visited his sister in PA when I went to
US on backpacking trip in 1998 and received a small amount of his
ashes in a film case so I can sprinkle in Japan (where he visited
but I still do keep his ashes as I moved back to Thailand before
I found a good opportunity to do so in Japan).
I wanted his loss to be known on your website in your "alumni
search" page as Timothy Keating was a good friend to many of
his photography students/Erawan staffs and I thought many of them
wanted to know whereabout of his.
