What's New: April 2023

April 12, 2023

In the latest update, described in the introduction by Sir David Cannadine, we include the biographies of 247 people who died in 2019 and who left their mark on the UK's national life, including Mary Warnock, Ginger Baker, and Andrea Levy.

From April 2023, the Oxford DNB offers biographies of 64,820 men and women who have shaped the British past, contained in 62,408 articles. 11,988 biographies include a portrait image of the subject—researched in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery, London.

As ever, we have a free selection of these new entries, together with a full list of the new biographies.
