Related imageAntony R. H. Copley (1 July 1937 – 18 July 2016) was a British historian. He was an honorary professor at the University of Kent at Canterbury, and specialised in nineteenth century French history and modern Indian history.

He was born on 1 July 1937 in Hertfordshire, the son of Alan Copley, a solicitor, and Iris Copley, and educated at Gresham's School and Worcester College, Oxford.[1]

In 1967, he joined the staff at the University of Kent at Canterbury, and was granted an honorary professorship when he retired.[2]

In 1959 Copley was found by the police in a public lavatory and arrested for importuning with immoral purposes. On the advice of his solicitor father, he pleaded guilty.[1] At the time of his death he was looking forward to a general pardon for men who like himself had been convicted of homosexual acts.[1][3]
