Passing of Professor Reuben Musiker

LIASA notes with regret the recent passing of Reuben Musiker, Professor Emeritus of Librarianship and Bibliography at the University of the Witwatersrand and at the time of his passing, Library Consultant to the SA Jewish Board of Deputies. Professor Musiker had an illustrious scholarly career that included among others, many decades of service on the editorial board of Jewish Affairs, lengthy authorship of ‘ The Guide to South African reference books’ and which resulted in many scholarly works of South African interest notably, ‘ Review of Jewish Memories of Mandela’.

We acknowledge with appreciation his contribution to the library and information services sector and send our condolences to his wife Naomi and their family.

Kind regards
