It’s an honour to feature Stella Dextre Clarke in this issue. She is a past winner of UKeiG’s prestigious Tony Kent Strix Award, Vice Chair of the UK branch of the International Society for Knowledge Organization and presented at last year’s Tony Kent Strix Memorial Lecture at the Geological Society in London. For those of you who couldn’t attend the event, she has written an extensive feature that traces the history of the award winners going back to 1998, articulating how their research and achievements reflect the scope and evolution of information retrieval through the years.
