Members of SLHA will be sad to learn of the death on 5 April of Professor Alan Rogers, Honorary Professor of Adult Education at Nottingham University.
It was Alan Rogers who brought the idea of producing a history of Lincolnshire to the Lincolnshire Local History Society, and he was a key member in a distinguished group of East Midlands historians who met in January 1966 to inaugurate the History of Lincolnshire Committee. He served as Chairman of the committee for a period from 1968.
Professor Rogers worked as a member of the academic staff at Nottingham, Ulster and Reading. He wrote a number of highly regarded books on the teaching of adults and several on historical aspects of Stamford.
