John Lough, 1913–2000

Show Summary Details


John Lough was in very many ways an exemplary member of the British academic establishment. He was a punctilious scholar and industrious researcher, who shared the results of his inquiries with the intellectual community in a prolific series of books and articles. Although he was essentially a man of the written, rather than the spoken, word, he took his duties as teacher very seriously, and also played a prominent part in the governance of Durham University, where most of his career unfolded.
