Conrad Russell, historian of 16th and 17th-century Britain, possessed a remarkable memory and could quote at length from other documents to give point and context to new material. His enthusiasm was contagious. History was not only an academic pursuit of great rigour, but also a pleasure shared between like-minded friends. Throughout his academic career Russell was a devoted tutor, and his students felt the vibrancy of engaging directly with a historian who was posing new questions in his own field. The book that made his name was his brilliant 1979 monograph, Parliaments and English Politics 1621–1629.
