Mather Walker July 25, 1937 - February 10, 2024 (86 years old) Savannah, Georgia


Recommended Posts


Mather Walker had a deep passion about all things Francis Bacon and gave me permission to host his many essays and digital books. He was on a mission with his knowledge & inimitable writing style along with a great sense of humor.

My condolences to his son Wayne and to all that cherished Mather. He will be truly missed.

We have long enjoyed Mather Walker’s works. An incredibly unique and insightful writer and his love for Francis Bacon always shines through like in this beautiful essay excerpt from ‘What Francis Bacon Means To Me’ from 2004 https://sirbacon.org/mathermean.htm

‘We, who live today, dwell on the apex of a vast pyramid of human achievement; achievement accumulated through many long struggles in the service of science and technology.  We reap these benefits each day in a thousand ways: electricity, television, telephones, aeronautics, and medicine; without giving thought to our debt.  But it all goes back to Bacon.  He set it all in motion.  He was the one who prepared the unique soil that enabled it to grow, and he was the one who planted the unique seed from which it grew.  Prometheus was a myth.  Francis Bacon was real, and his achievements far greater than any imagination could conceive.’

Mather Walker R.I.P

Currently the Newsletter is only available to FBS members .... I believe. Is it possible your Tribute could be shared here on What's New as well?

Oh my! Is it not posted here? We did wait until after the FBS Newsletter had time to be read as this piece was a request by the FBS.

It is in the vast SirBacon.org Bibliography under Gerald, Lawrence:
