Historian Alan Barnes

I have just heard that ALAN BARNES, a former friend and colleague from the University of Derby died last week. He was an original thinker and researcher in the history of art and was particularly interested in the history of photography. The funeral is at 12.30 on 10 June at Trent Valley Crematorium near Derby. Can you please pass on this sad news to those you think should know. Thanks.
