It grieves me to bring news that Angry Harry, a British legend in the MRM for many years, has passed away, at the age of 64. His partner called me earlier today to inform me of the news. Harry died suddenly from a brain aneurysm at the end of February, we hope without having suffered.
His partner also emailed Paul Elam, who’s posted this tribute, which explains why Harry was so widely admired. At the Detroit conference in 2014, many people came up to me hoping to meet Angry Harry and/or ManWomanMyth. Sadly neither were there, and MWM has since ‘gone to ground’.
An archived copy of the home page of Harry’s principal website is here.
My memories of Harry, from the four or five times we met, are of a warm, generous, amusing and mild-mannered man (despite his pseudonym). A deeply private man, he didn’t even own a mobile phone. He declined an offer to speak at the London conference because he was concerned that if his identity became publicly known, it could impact negatively on his work prospects. But he was grateful for a complimentary ticket, and was greatly looking forward to meeting people at the conference, after insisting that we didn’t announce his appearance as a delegate in advance.
Harry was one of the good ones, who helped bring so many to the MRM. May he rest in peace.
