Roy Millward died on 25 January 2016. A long-standing Fellow of the Society, Roy had a long and distinguished academic career. Serving as Lecturer and Reader in geography at the University of Leicester, a role he held for 35 years, Roy is credited with assisting the development of a well-equipped teaching and research department during the University’s rise from college status to independent degree-awarding institution. With a keen interest in historical geography, he published 17 books, 14 of them co-authored with his colleague and friend Adrian Robinson, on the geography of Britain. He is survived by his wife, four children, nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
