William Sangster Phillips died on 19 October 2001 just shortly before his 100th birthday. He was born in Dundee on 15 December 1901 and attended Dundee High School. His Father, Charles Gustave Louis Phillips, was an artist of some distinction. His paintings which Mr Phillips had retained at this death, were bequeathed to the Dundee Heritage Trust, and are regularly displayed at Discovery Point or Verdant Works. They are mainly, but not all, scenes in Dundee and its surrounds. His Father’s best-known picture is Siege of Dundee by General Monk which belongs to the Dundee City Council and is displayed on the first floor at the right-hand entrance to the Council Chambers. Mr Phillips was predeceased by his wife and left no family. He was a member of the Scottish Liberal Party and a past President of the Scottish Lawn Tennis Association.
