So farewell then, Bill Davis, the former Evening Standard City editor, who’s filed his last aged 85. Davis, who grew up in Germany during World War Two and took on British citizenship in his teens, ran the Evening Standard’s City pages aged 26 before moving to the Guardian. He went on to edit Punch, and an illustrious career at the BBC, as well as writing 20 books. Sadly missed – Reproduced from the Evening Standard City Spy page this week.
Honorary Treasurer and Director of the London Press Club and the London Press Club Ball.
