Peter Hingley (1951-2012) Librarian of the Royal Astronomical Society

We are very sad to hear of the death of Peter Hingley, Librarian of the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS).  His death was announced today by the RAS.

Peter was a great friend to many in the astronomical community and will be very much missed.  Particularly, the IoA Library is grateful for his help and co-operation over many years.  Without his help, tracking down obscure references, many requests would have remained unsatisfied.  He was always helpful and cheerful and with a tremendous breadth of knowledge on all sorts of subjects.

A gentleman and a scholar.
