The Co-coordinators and the Coordinating Committee of CLIOHRES wish to share with all CLIOHRES members and friends the tragic news that Alexandra (Alex) Smith, CLIOHRES doctoral from Cardiff University, passed away in late April of a heart attack.
Alex joined CLIOHRES in early 2007 and was due to submit her thesis by the end of 2009. She was a member of TWG3 and gave a contribution to that Thematic Working Group that went far beyond the call of duty, helping in checking and linguistic revision. She was remarkable in that she took a degree in astrophysics at Cardiff before taking another one in archaeology and ancient history.
The only ray of sunshine is that Alex lived to see her first publication in "Bridging the Gaps" (TWG3 Vol III), and was thrilled to see it in print.
We express our great sadness and share the grief of Alex's family and loved ones.
