It was with deep sadness that we learned of the death of Professor Mary Turner on 22 January 2013 after a brief illness. Born in Hull in East Yorkshire, she studied history at the University of Manchester. She moved to Jamaica in the early 1950s and developed a life-long fascination for the history of the region. Mary returned to London later in the decade to undertake a PhD. Her long and distinguished career as a teacher and scholar culminated with a Chair in History at Dalhousie University, Canada.
