  • Editor's Note:A Tribute to Jim Arnold
  • Nicole Pohl

It is with great sadness that we have to share with you the news of the death of Jim Arnold, MBE (1946–2019). Many of us knew him as the efficient treasurer of the Utopian Studies Society, and we are very grateful for his services to the society.

His most passionate work, however, as the "the greatest conservator in Europe" was dedicated to Robert Owen's New Lanark.1 For thirty-six years, Jim was the director of the New Lanark Conservation Trust. Both he and Lorna Davidson, long-standing secretary to the Utopian Studies Society and the second director of the New Lanark Conversation Trust, were instrumental in elevating Owen's village to a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001.

"The world is in his debt."2
