Colin Roberts: 1909-1990

Colin Roberts, formerly Lecturer in Papyrology in Oxford, contributed to The Oxyrhynchus Papyri principally during the period 1941-1957. During many years as Secretary to the Delegates of the Clarendon Press in Oxford, he maintained his interest in the subject, publishing a further small group of theological texts in 1982 and taking an active part in committee work.
