Ulla Ehrensvärd 1927 – 2015

We just learnt about the death, on 17 April 2015, of Ulla Ehrensvärd, aged 88. A well-known map historian, she received, among many other distinctions, the prestigious Helen Wallis Award from IMCoS in June last year – see our congratulatory note in Maps in History No 50, September 2014. Lisette Danckaert, who knew her quite well, adds: She will be remembered through her many significant contributions to the History of Cartography as 'La Grande Dame du Nord'.
