Notes and references

  1. 1.0 1.1 J. K. Rowling stated at the Edinburgh Book Festival on 15 August 2014 (source) that all portraits at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are of deceased individuals. Thus, this headmaster must have died sometime in or before the 1990s, given his portrait's appearance in the Headmaster's office set at The Making of Harry Potter.
