Regrettably, I have been informed that Bob Woods, John Rankin Professor of Geography at the University of Liverpool, has died. Some of you will have met him last year. Bob became an active supporter of De Partu in 2009. He attended the first annual lecture and was involved as an ‘expert’ at the first colloquium. His academic interests included historical demography and trends in fetal mortality, and his publications included Death before Birth (2009).
I have included below a link to Bob’s obituary from Liverpool University, kindly sent by Julia Allison.
