We were saddened to hear of the recent death of Mr Roger Payton FRSA. Mr Payton had been a staunch friend to and supporter of the Library for twenty-five years and will be greatly missed. Our sympathies go to his family and friends.
Over the years Mr Payton gave the Library an extensive and fascinating collection of mainly eigtheenth and nineteenth century prints and paintings, depicting Lambeth Palace and the surrounding area, and has lent the Library many more. These prints are not only an important research resource but have, over the years, given great pleasure to many visitors to the Library who will have seen them on display in the Great Hall.
