The libraries maintain an index to published memoirs, notices and obituaries of members in the yearbooks and list of members, Journal of the Institute of Actuaries, Transactions of the Faculty of Actuaries, and The Actuary magazine. It is indexed by surname.
Please contact email@example.com to access the index or to request the full obituary paper. Some obituary papers may be available through this site's search facility and we can provide a link to access the paper online or supply an electronic file of a paper scanned from the profession's early journals.
Documents listing the Past Presidents of the original Faculty of Actuaries and Past Presidents of the Institute of Actuaries are available.
In 2010, the respective memberships of the Faculty and of the Institute voted by a majority for a merger as one professional body, the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, with Presidents elected for one year terms, supported by the immediate Past President and the President-elect for the following year.
Actuaries recognised with awards and prizes
The IFoA and former Faculty and Institute have each recognised the achievements of individual actuaries for success in professional examinations or for their significant contribution to actuarial science or to the profession. More details are available in Recognition, prizes and awards. Again the libraries can provide links to published papers on the award events honouring individual actuaries.
The libraries are pleased to help those researching actuaries as family ancestors. Our index to obituary references may lead to more biographical information about some actuaries, but where an obituary is not available, we may be able to research a member's entry as a student in the profession, their date of qualification as a Fellow, some employment details (sometimes recorded in insurance company histories) from published sources and sometimes a photograph. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your enquiry.
