Professor Anna Morpurgo Davies DBE

Memorial Service

A memorial service will be held at Somerville College on
Saturday 20th June 2015
More details will follow

The Faculty is deeply sorry to announce that  Professor Anna Morpurgo Davies died on the 27th September, aged 77.

Professor Davies, who came to Oxford in 1962 and retired in 2004, fostered  the study of linguistics in the University throughout her long career and even in retirement. The very existence of the Faculty of Linguistics, Philology, and Phonetics owes much to her support and inspiration. The loss to academic life in, and far beyond, Oxford, and to many of us individually, is inexpressible. An outstanding scholar, a remarkably wise and kind counsellor, and above all a much-loved friend, has been taken from us.

Her funeral took place in Somerville College Chapel on Saturday, 18 October 2014.

For an outline of her life and achievements, see also the obituary posted by her College, Somerville
