Mary Cadogan's Last Interview

The recent death of Dr Mary Cadogan, the first Secretary of the Krishnamurti Foundation Trust, has come as a great loss. Mary began working with Krishnamurti Writings Inc. in London in 1958; assisting with publications work and organizing public meetings and discussions with Krishnamurti. She became the European representative for the work, and was a key figure in establishing the KFT and Brockwood Park School in the 1960s. It was at Krishnamurti's request that she became the first Secretary of the KFT; she remained a Trustee of the Trust and a Governor of Brockwood Park School until her recent death. Mary nurtured excellent relationships with the other Krishnamurti Foundations and Committees throughout the world. She edited Krishnamurti's works, and arranged publication and translation of the books. She helped establish Brockwood Park School and the Krishnamurti Centre, and for over 50 years worked with a succession of Trustees. We shall miss her wise guidance, inspiring energy, affection and humour.

The following interview is the last that Mary gave. It was recorded at Brockwood Park on the 24th August 2014. Mary is interviewed by long-time supporter and friend of Brockwood, Taher Gozel. He asks Mary about the relationship between David Bohm and Krishnamurti, and about what it was like to work so closely with Krishnamurti.
