Fellows’ obituaries

When a Fellow of the Academy dies, another Fellow writes their obituary on behalf of the Academy. Often the author has had a long and close association with the deceased, in both their working and personal lives. Their insights, particularly from the perspective of the Academy and their scholarship, make them uniquely important and interesting documents.

These obituaries have traditionally been included in the Academy’s Annual Report each year.

As of 2020, we will upload the obituaries directly to the website on a rolling basis. The combined 2019-20 Obituaries can be found here, and individual obituaries can be found alphabetically below.
