We offer our warm congratulations to Dr Leofranc Holford-Strevens, long-time member of the DMLBS committee and reader of our draft dictionary material, on being awarded the President’s Medal of the British Academy for ‘his significant work copy-editing hundreds of publications across a broad range of languages and disciplines’. His contribution to the DMLBS project over many years has been immense, and we are delighted that his lifetime of service in humanities scholarship, of which his association with the DMLBS has been just a part, should be recognized in this prestigious award.
