Congratulations to four Queens' members who were included in the New Year's Honours List 2022.
Professor James Diggle (Life Fellow) has been awarded a CBE for his services to classical scholarship. James Diggle is a Professor of Latin and Greek who has overseen the 20 year production of the new Cambridge Greek Lexicon, which received widespread acclaim soon after its release in 2021. He joined Queens’ in 1966 as a Research Fellow and previously served as Praelector and Director of Studies in Classics.
Mrs Louise Smith (2005) has been awarded an OBE for public services to the Arts during Covid-19. Louise is the Deputy Director for Arts and Libraries in the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. During the pandemic she oversaw support for the sector by securing and delivering the £2bn Culture Recovery Fund, which has supported thousands of Arts institutions and organisations, like theatres, museums, dance companies, and orchestras.
Mr Paul Greengrass (1974, Honorary Fellow) has been awarded a CBE for his services to the Arts. Mr Greengrass is a renowned British director, screenwriter and producer who directed Captain Phillips (2013) and three of the Jason Bourne films.
Mr Richard Tilbrook (1980) has been awarded a CVO for his work as Clerk of the Privy Council and the Prime Minister's Secretary for Appointments. Richard read Classics at Queens' under James Diggle, so it is lovely to see them both on the same honours list.
