Sad news for St Hugh’s

It is with great sadness that we must share the news that two of St Hugh’s alumnae and Honorary Fellows have passed away.

Professor Doreen Massey passed away on the 11th March after a long and dynamic career as Emeritus Professor of Geography at the Open University. Doreen studied Geography at St Hugh’s College and was appointed Honorary Fellow in 2001. Tributes have been paid by friends and colleagues to the remarkable contribution she made to Geography and the Social Sciences and our thoughts are with her family and loved ones at this very sad time.

Sadly we must also share the news that Tessa Solesby CMG, former Foreign Office Diplomat and Ambassador for Britain, died on the 3rd March. Tessa was a St Hugh’s student during the early 1950s and remained a friend of the college throughout her career, as both an alumna and as an Honorary Fellow. She was a friend to many and will be sorely missed.
