Our fine arts fair was an oustanding success, and I want to thank you sincerely for your participation in that activity. Your time and energies are most helpful to us in developing appreciation and skills in the art are for young children...

Mr. Richard Turner has been a staff artist with the Epigraphic Survey of the Oriental Institute at Luxor, Arab Republic of Egypt, since 1st October 1968 until 15th April 1973. During the period of his association with this expedition he has given satisfaction in his work, applying himself with diligence and accepting the discipline which our exacting requirements for precision demand. His drawings of difficult material are excellent. During his last two years he has also served as the expedition’s photographer, and I have been happy with his work in this area too. I am certain that he will be eminently successful in any position, within his wide competence, which he accepts.
Mr. Peter de Francia, Royal College of ArtMay 1966
Richard Turner was a student of mine in this Department over the past two years. He has struck me throughout the course as a most serious and interested student, who is reflective and interested in a variety of problems centred in his profession. He has struck me as someone who might make a good teacher. Mr Turner has developed in the last two years to a marked extent in terms both of ideas and ability to express ideas.
