We mourn the death of our friend and president, Stuart Macintyre. In the days since Stuart’s death there has been an avalanche of tributes and we reprint three of these below. Written by Brian Aarons, Tim Rowse, and Janet McCalman, they speak to the enormous influence of Stuart’s work and to his character and his citizenship.
That citizenship, and Stuart’s generosity, explain why he agreed to take on the presidency of the Australian Society for the Study of Labour History at a critical time. When ASSLH lost its institutional funding, Stuart helped us to navigate a tumultuous period during which we relied on donations from members and the journal’s operations shifted to Liverpool University Press.
