We were deeply saddened to learn of the death just before Christmas of our colleague, Professor Richard Roberts, Professor of Contemporary History in the Department of Political Economy, King’s College London. Professor Roberts was a distinguished financial historian and a long-time supporter and associate of H&P. Among his contributions were a H&P paper, and the delivery of a key Home Office seminar on historic government cuts. It is above all his constant goodwill and collegiality that will be greatly missed by H&P’s academic committee and staff. Our thoughts and sympathy are with his family.
H&P is an expanding Partnership based at King's College London and the University of Cambridge, and additionally supported by the University of Bristol, the University of Edinburgh, the University of Leeds, the Open University, and the University of Sheffield.
We are the only project in the UK providing access to an international network of more than 500 historians with a broad range of expertise. H&P offers a range of resources for historians, policy makers and journalists.
