Professor Alan Jones

It is with great sadness that we share the news that our former colleague Professor Alan Jones (*1933) passed away on 25 September 2021. He taught at the Oriental Institute from 1957-2000, first as Lecturer in Islamic Studies, and then as Reader in Classical Arabic and Professor of Classical Arabic. He was a Fellow of St Cross in 1965-1980, and Fellow of Pembroke in 1980-2001. Alan is fondly remembered by his colleagues in our Faculty, and he will be missed.
