It is with great regret that the Council reports the death of Peter Payne, a vice president of the BAC, on 10 January 2017 at the age of 87. He had been in touch with us as recently as November 2016, wishing us well for the Conference and the Wadsworth Prize reception. We send our condolences to his widow Enid, son Simon, daughter Samantha and their families.
Peter’s achievements in business history and business archives were truly outstanding. He was at the forefront of business history as it continued to develop as a discipline in its own right in the USA and UK in the late 1950s and 1960s.
