In Memoriam

In Memoriam JOHN MCCAFFREY, M.A., Ph.D., F.R.Hist.S. The Scottish Church History Society lost one of its best-loved members with the death of John McCaffrey on 19th July 2002 at the age of 68. John was a very active Vice-President of the Society between 1989 and 1992, and served as its President between 1992 and 1995, leading it with the generous, quiet, and kindly authority, unswerving devotion to duty and deep personal integrity, which were John's hallmarks. Typically, John saw leadership as a chance to serve others. John was born in 1933 in Rutherglen, the eldest of three brothers. On leaving school he worked in the Glasgow office of the registrar of births, marriages and deaths. Only after national service and a further stint in the registrar's office did John take up a place at Glasgow University. He graduated with honours in history in 1962 and the following year was appointed to an assistant lectureship in Scottish History. John served loyally in the Department of Scottish History for over thirty years, eventually becoming its Head during the transition between the retirement of Professor Archie Duncan and the arrival of Professor Ted Cowan. John was modest about his achievements as Head of Department, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Scottish Church History Edinburgh University Press
