NASIG president Katy Ginanni made the following announcement Monday, April 25, to the membership via NASIG-L:
It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of John Merriman in his home of Charlbury, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom. As you may know, John was the founder of UKSG and was instrumental in the beginning of NASIG. A brief announcement appeared in the Daily Telegraph (http://announcements.telegraph.co.uk/deaths/132363/merriman). Next week’s edition of the UKSG’s Serials eNews will have a more complete obituary.
NASIG will plan a special remembrance of John for our conference in St. Louis.
