Tributes paid to Honorary Fellow, Professor Sir Owen Chadwick

20 July 2015

The College is sorry to note the death of Professor Sir Owen Chadwick, Honorary Fellow, at the age of 99.  Owen Chadwick was one of the most distinguished historians of his time, Master of Selwyn College for 27 years, and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge.  He came to Trinity Hall as Chaplain in 1947, serving with Launcelot Fleming who was Dean at the time.  Owen stayed on as Dean when Launcelot left to become Bishop of Portsmouth.  After he became Master of Selwyn in 1956, Owen retained a strong affection for the Hall, coming back often for feasts and other occasions.  Many alumni from the late 1940s and 1950s will have warm memories of him.
