Renowned Wellington historian and VSA life member Tim Beaglehole, 82, passed away suddenly in Wellington on 18 July 2015.
A former chancellor of Victoria University, Beaglehole was Deputy Chair of the VSA Council from 1971-73, Chair from 1974-75, and a member of VSA selection panels for more than 35 years.
In February 2003, when proposing his life membership, Carolyn Mark (then VSA's Volunteer Recruitment Manager) noted that he was still a donor, member, and regular attendee of VSA events in Wellington, and that he more than filled the life membership criteria for loyal service over a period of time.
Beaglehole’s funeral was at Old St Paul's in Wellington on 24 July. VSA extends its deepest sympathy to his wife Helen and their family.
