Passing of archivist Elizabeth Berry

With thanks to Wendy Archer and Keith Sweetmore of North Yorkshire County Record Office for the following:

Some sad news - Elizabeth Berry has died, at the age of 84. Elizabeth was County Archivist of West Yorkshire from 1974 until 1986, and in those years a leading member of the Society of Archivists and a pioneering advocate for archives on the national stage. There is a private family cremation at Darlington on Thursday. It is hoped to announce details of an event to commemorate her life and work, later in the year.
