We are very sad to announce the death of Professor Bill Speck. Bill was President of the HA from 1999 to 2002 and editor of the journal History from 1986 to 1992. Bill was a greatly admired and respected historian as well as a kind and much loved person. He will be very much missed. A full obituary will be published in The Historian. If any members would like to remember Bill, his family have asked for donations to be made to the RSPCA in his name.
