The Manchester Literary and Philosophical Society were deeply sorry to hear about the recent death of Professor Brian Robson, a member of the Society from 1987 – 2005. He graduated from Cambridge University and was a world authority on urban geography. He was appointed as a Professor at the University of Manchester in 1977 and subsequently became Dean of the Faculty of Arts, and Pro Vice Chancellor of the University. His OBE was granted in 2010 for services to regeneration. He was also very active in many voluntary organisations in Manchester, making significant contributions to all in which he was involved.

We extend our deep sympathy to his family at this difficult time.
