Dr. Roger Pearson — a pioneering scholar and publisher across a wide range of anthropological studies, and a brave champion of racial reality in a world which increasingly denies scientific truth — has died aged 95. Born in England but spending most of his adult life in the United States, Dr. Pearson was a good friend of many racial realists such as Jared Taylor, Sam Dickson, Paul Fromm, Tom Sunic, and Heritage & Destiny editor Mark Cotterill, whose obituary tribute is online here. One of his last public activities was his speech at a tribute last June organized by Counter-Currents and the Free Expression Foundation: click here for details. (more…)
Obituary for Prof. Roger Pearson,
M.Sc. (Econ), Ph.D., (London): 1927–2023
All of us at Heritage & Destiny were saddened to hear of the recent death of Dr. Roger Pearson, who was a long-standing subscriber to H&D magazine — in fact he was our eldest subscriber, aged 95, when he died in Washington, DC in January.
Dr. Pearson was a true English gentleman in every sense. He was born in London in 1927, but spent much of his childhood in Yorkshire. In October 1944, towards the end of the Second World War, he joined the British Army, despite his entitlement to exemption from military service to attend university after completing his Higher School Certificate examinations.

Guy Mouminoux, who died on January 11, 2022, is remembered for his only novel, the autobiographical war story The Forgotten Soldier (under the pseudonym of Guy Sajer) as well as for his humorous or historical comic strips (under the pseudonym of Dimitri).
Mouminoux was born in Paris on January 13, 1927. In 1916 his father, an infantryman who had been taken prisoner in Verdun, met his mother during his detention in Germany. Guy spent his youth in Alsace and was passionate about reading children’s comic books. (more…)
They say that you should never meet or get to know your heroes, but I completely disagree.
I have been very fortunate in my life to have gotten to know many of the heavy metal musicians who I grew up listening to. Whether I was working backstage at concerts or on tour with my favorite bands, I have seen many of my heroes at their best and worst. Discovering that your heroes and idols also flatulate and drink too much might ruin the music and childhood memories for many people, but for me, it only made the music and experiences with my heroes that much more exciting and authentic.

A Tip of the Trilby: On the Passing of the Dynamic Duo, Meat Loaf & Jim Steinman
“We didn’t know each other, we were each other.” — Meat Loaf on Jim Steinman
On Thursday, as it must to all men, death came to Marvin Lee Aday, known professionally as Meat Loaf. Mr. Loaf was perhaps an acquired taste, but he was certainly an energetic performer — on one occasion, falling off the stage, only to insist on completing his tour in a wheelchair. Despite his prodigious girth and periodic drug abuse, he more than fulfilled his Biblical three score and ten, dying at 74. (more…)
I found some intriguing perspectives in the recent batch of obituaries for Colin Flaherty, who died on January 11. They almost all recall him as best known for his internet videos and bestselling books on under-reported black crime (White Girl Bleed a Lot, Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry, et al.).
Maybe that’s a valid point today. However, having known him for 30 years, I thought of this post-2012 phase as just a minor coda to his career, sort of like Laurence Olivier doing Polaroid commercials in the 1970s. If you had to explain to clueless people who Sir Laurence Olivier was, you’d mention the commercials, and the folks would think, “Oh, he’s this guy who sells cameras.” (more…)
Colin Flaherty, author, journalist, and tireless reporter on black crime, has died. This is tragic in and of itself, of course, since, at the age of 66, the man was taken by cancer before his time. But for dissidents today, his passing has an even deeper meaning.
As of a few years ago, Flaherty was still a (barely) respectable mainstream writer who, while rankling many on the Left with blunt truths about black crime, still eschewed true dissidence. (more…)
Be careful out there this week, guys: As the old saying goes, White Nationalists always die in threes. Or maybe I’m thinking of celebrities. I dunno. Either way, be careful, because over the weekend, news broke on social media about the passing of not one, but two Dissident Rightists. Both were deeply involved in the Alt Right circa 2017-2018, but had faded from public view in recent years. (more…)
Colin Powell is dead. The media claims he is yet another victim of the ongoing COVID-19 plague. I won’t get into the whole vaccine morality play; once a person reaches his biblical three score and ten, diseases that are easily curable in young adults become deadly. (more…)
Stephen Mitford Goodson, as his name suggests, was related to the Mitfords of Diana Mosley and Unity fame. Having served on the editorial board of The Barnes Review, he is most remembered by the imbecilic and notably unreliable Wikipedia and other sundry scum as a “holocaust denier” and for being “anti-Semitic” because the entirety of the world is supposed to be Judeocentric. However, Goodson arrived at his conclusions through his academic and professional backgrounds in economics and finance. (more…)
“Lovas is dead”
“Lovas is dead.” Those were the three terrible words to which I awakened on Tuesday, June 12, 2018. How could I believe that it was possible when, only two weeks before, I had spent an evening with, among others, István Lovas – a distinguished author and journalist in Hungary – and he was full of energy, drinking, laughing, and speaking like a young man despite his 72 years? And still . . . (more…)
‘Zine Master Adam: Remembering Adam Parfrey, April 12, 1957–May 10, 2018
Adam Parfrey, the publisher of humor and esoterica who parlayed a 1980s “‘zine” sensibility into a durable niche publishing house, has died at his home in Port Townsend, Washington. He was 61. [Erratum note: Adam died in Seattle. —MM]
His main publishing imprint, Feral House, specialized in topics pertaining to pop culture, far-Right politics, and conspiracy theorizing. (more…)
