In the article 'UCT three awarded national orders', in volume 31.08 of 18 May, we indicated that Prof Apollon Davidson, formerly of UCT's Centre for Russian Studies, had received his national order posthumously.

We have since learnt that Prof Davidson is very much alive and well, and is both professor at the National Research University - Higher School of Economics in Moscow, and also head of the Centre for African History at the Institute of General History, Russian Academy of Sciences.

We also said that Prof Davidson was at UCT from 2008 to 2001. This is obviously wrong - he was in fact based here from 1998 to 2001. We apologise for these errors.
