In Memory of Clive Emsley

Working with Clive was an honour and a joy. He was an unusual combination of a serious scholar with a ready sense of humour, always ready to support new in service colleagues. He was generous with his extensive library and his friendly support and advice, without being patronising or dogmatic in his views. Working with John Muncie, he was the joint Director and driver of the establishment of ICCCR – the forerunner to HERC – and his perseverance and determination helped to overcome many obstacles in that process.
