1998.04   Memories of Chris by Geraldine Chapman

This remarkable account is probably the single most significant item on this website. It is a collection of personal memories written by Geraldine Chapman, Chris Acland's cousin, between 1992 and 1998. It includes an interview of Chris (more like a private conversation) done by his cousin in October 1996 just two weeks before Chris took his own life, and her recollections of the aftermath; the devastation it caused, letters from her family, and her conversations with Miki
 

 

 

 This website is dedicated to the memory of Chris Acland
