Glenn Black

(St Andrew's College, Grahamstown & Trinity 1966) (21 September 1943 - 12 January 2024)

Dr Black was a CUF lecturer (now Associate Professor) at the [University of Oxford] English Faculty, and a Fellow of Oriel College from April 1978 until his retirement in 2010. He is remembered as a beloved colleague who worked tirelessly and with enthusiasm for our students. He was an early modernist, with wide interests, and will have been known to many as an editor of Notes and Queries for many decades. He was also a Proctor and Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the University. He will be missed by many at the English Faculty.
