Francis Lamport mourned

We are sad to announce that Francis Lamport, University Lecturer in German and Emeritus Fellow of Worcester College, died peacefully on Tuesday 13 October.

Francis was the author of a series of books on Lessing, Goethe, and German Classicism, an accomplished translator whose translations of Schiller’s ‘The Robbers’ and ‘Wallenstein’ were performed by the RSC and others, and a much-loved colleague and tutor. 

The funeral will be restricted, but we hope to arrange a larger celebration of his life in due course when circumstances permit.
