Malcolm Jeal

Malcolm Jeal, Friend of Automotive History, honorary member of the Society of Automotive Historians and of the Society of Automotive Historians in Britain, passed away on Tuesday 5 July, at 72 years of age from pancreatic cancer. Our thoughts are with Malcolm's widow Eunice.

Malcolm will be much missed by all of us, he was one of our foremost automotive historians, and his knowledge and insights were enormously appreciated.  He was always ready to share information, and helped many of us.  Over a career of many years in the field of automotive history, he held such important positions as chairman of the dating panel of the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain, and editor of The Automobile magazine.  As well as being chairman of the SAHB, he founded and edited the first ten issues of our annual publication Aspects of Motoring History.  He was for many years one of the organisers of the annual SAH dinner in Paris.

Thank you to Anders Ditlev Clausager for contributing these brief details on Malcolm's considerable committment to automotive history.
