The death of E.W. Swanton in January 2000, at the age of 92, brought to an end a remarkable life that spanned, and in many ways summed up, almost the whole of the 20th century. He was best known as the doyen of cricket correspondents, reporting for the Daily Telegraph, editing The Cricketer magazine, summarising the day's play for Test Match Special in his mellifluous baritone, and publishing over 20 books.
