Norris McWhirter dies

Posted Apr 20, 2004 in Miscellaneous.

In sad news, Norris McWhirter, co-founder of Guinness Book of Records, has died at the age of 78.

I grew up with the book in the 1970s, and my brother and I owned several editions. Norris McWhirter was a regular on British television, carrying a similar air of trust and reliability to that of Sir David Attenborough, for example.
