Professor Peter Spufford, Litt.D., F.B.A., F.S.A., F.S.G., F.R.Hist.S.
(1934–2017)

In Memoriam

It is with deep regret that the President must inform the Membership of the death, on 19th November, of our Vice-President, Prof. Peter Spufford, who was a member of CUH&GS for sixty years. Peter was President in the academic year 1959–1960 and was always willing to offer sound advice to incoming (and remaining) Presidents.

There will be a memorial service in Queens' College in due course. Any members wishing to attend will be more than welcome. Gowns are, of course, encouraged.
