English architectural historian Julia Ionides was born on 7 April 1942 and grew up in Berkshire. She spent most of her adult life in Shropshire, most recently running The Dog Rose Trust - a charity which used technology to help blind people - and various other enterprises with her architect husband Peter Howell.
Although Julia only wrote once for M&V - a review of organ music from the Georgian period - her generous contributions to the magazine were far reaching in the help she gave our editorial team, and in particular she was instrumental in providing much M&V coverage of music in Estonia.
Julia Ionides died in the UK on 13 December 2015, aged seventy-three, after suffering brain damage from a fall whilst in Istanbul, researching material for a book about her family.
