Nancy Tupholme (née Morris, 1912-2014)

kjhNancy Tupholme died 3 January 2014, aged 101. Nancy came to work in the Society in November 1940 and helped it through the difficult wartime years. She stayed until 1962, when she moved next door to the Royal Society (then in the Royal Society of Chemistry’s apartments) and stayed until retirement. Nancy became Secretary of the European Association of Science Editors and maintained her attachment to the Geological Society. Until the 1990s she would be seen frequently in Burlington House undertaking various voluntary duties. She indexed the Council Minutes for the Hon Archivist and, until Richard Bateman’s appointment as Executive Secretary, continued to organise President’s Day (then a ‘black tie’ event). She remained active until recently, remaining at ‘Bruins’ near Farnham, which she had had built, looked after by cousins and carers. Her friends and associates will remember her poems and her personal Christmas cards each year. The Library has copies of her memoir 'Titanic' to the Millennium (2000 & 2001). Wendy Cawthorne
