MARGERY (Mobbs) Moberly (70), well known in Pietermaritzburg from her long association with the University of Natal Press, died in Durban last week after a brief illness, the victim of a particularly aggressive cancer of the lungs.

The acquisition of a library science diploma brought her back to the university, first in the library, then to the university archives and finally to the university press. Initially termed the manager of the Natal University Press, she was eventually awarded the rather grand title of Publisher to the University. She built up the press from a shaky start as a somewhat amateur and part-time operation to a highly professional institution, internationally respected for the quality of its scholarly publications. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
