Obituary: Michael P. J. Garvey FCA
Peter Garvey, who died in March 2012, was the long-serving Company and Membership Secretary of the Society for Nautical Research. His role was both time-consuming and hugely important. He gained enormous pleasure from the interaction with the members and Officers of the Society and as the first contact for members and prospective members he ably represented it. A Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Peter possessed an innate understanding of the demands of the membership and how they could be met.
