British Academy

John Varey was one of the greatest of twentieth-century hispanists, specialising in the history of Spanish theatre. His undergraduate studies were interrupted by service as a naviagator in Bomber Command. Varey founded the Department of Spanish at Westfield College, University of London, and in 1984 was appointed Principal of the college. He also founded Tamesis, a publishing house dedicated to hispanic studies, in 1963, and was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 1985. Varey managed a prodigious output of scholarly work despite a heavy workload of university administration. Obituary by Alan Deyermond FBA and Melveena McKendrick FBA.
