With deep regret we report the recent death of David Knight, former President of the British Society for the History of Science and editor of the journal. Eminent as a historian of chemistry, and specialising in Romanticism and the works of Humphry Davy, he was Professor of the History of Science at the University of Durham.

The Service of Thanksgiving will be at 12:30pm on Monday 5th February at St. Oswalds’s Church, Church Street, Durham.
