Obituary: Michael S. Partridge PHD FRHistSoc
Michael Partridge, who died in March 2009, contributed a great deal to the Society. He compiled the Annual Bibliography from its beginnings, with the 2007 issue, published in February 2009, being his last. He was also the Hon. Newsletter Editor from 1993 until May 1996, when he resigned to complete a history of the Royal Naval College, Osborne. The resulting publication, The Royal Naval College Osborne: A History 1903–1921, was critically acclaimed and for this work he was awarded the Society’s Anderson Medal for Research in Maritime History for 2000.
