Ann Torlesse

It is with deep sadness that we inform the Rhodes University community of the passing of Ann Torlesse, former Archivist in Cory Library. Ann was an alumnus of Rhodes University where she obtained her MA in History. Before joining Cory in 2013, Ann served as a Head of Collections at the National English Literary Museum (NELM) for about twenty (20) years.

As Archivist, she worked most closely with the Thelma Henderson Papers, Rosemary Smith Collection, and also the Jacot-Guillarmod deposit.

Ann is fondly remembered by her colleagues as a gentle soul, a lovely person.

Our condolences are extended to her family, friends and colleagues.


Dr Cornelius Thomas
