Congratulations to Dr Henry Miller!

And congrats to Henry from everyone at the HOP…

The Victorian Commons

Dr. Henry MillerWe’d like to congratulate Dr Henry Miller, who joined our project in 2009, on his new appointment as a lecturer at the University of Manchester. From September 2013 Henry will be a full-time lecturer in Nineteenth-Century British History in Manchester’s History department.

Henry has made an outstanding contribution to our House of Commons, 1832-68 project, researching and writing 201 biographies and 28 constituency articles (totalling 429,661 words!) during the last four and a half years. His main focus has been on the counties and boroughs of the English Midlands, including Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire. He has also written about the only new borough created during this period, the port of Birkenhead, and begun work on Scotland. Draft versions of his constituency pieces, ranging from Aberdeen to Wolverhampton, and of his biographies, from Edward A’Court to Sir William Young, can be consulted through our preview site.
