David S. Reeves, Senior Editor of JAC and founder member of BSAC

One of our Senior Editors, Professor David S. Reeves died peacefully last Friday, 18th October 2019. He was two months shy of his 82nd birthday but became ill a few weeks ago as lymphoma had returned and was incurable.

David was a founder member of BSAC, which took shape in 1971 at a meeting in Prague, and remained an active member spanning nearly 50 years. He was also a regular contributor to JAC, a firm but fair reviewer and took on the mantle of Editor in Chief in 2001.

A memorial service will take place in the spring of next year.

On behalf of the Journal and BSAC, we would like to offer our heartfelt condolences to his wife Deirdre, his family and friends, and all those whom he taught, trained and worked with throughout his long and distinguished career.
