Oxford University Press honour Vin

Updated: Jan 18


This morning on BBC Radio Tees it was announced that Vin has been added to The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography in their latest update. The Oxford DNB is the national record of men and women who have shaped British history and culture, worldwide, from the Romans to the 21st century. The Dictionary offers concise, up-to-date biographies written by named, specialist authors. It is overseen by academic editors at Oxford University, UK, and published by Oxford University Press. I am sure that Vin would have been amazed and delighted.

Vin's entry can be found here. You can read the entry by becoming a subscriber to the ODNB, or you can sign in with a library card number if you have one.


You can also listen to Amy Oakden and Vin's friend Pete Davies discuss the announcement on BBC Radio Tees catch-up here (skip to 3:24:14).
