Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the British Academy

Since its earliest years, the British Academy has published extended obituaries (memoirs) of deceased Fellows of the British Academy. Collectively the biographical memoirs of the British Academy make up a chapter in the intellectual history of Britain, and are used as a source by biographers and historians.

Since 2012 the Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the British Academy are posted online, building into an open-access resource.
