Ian Merry, Electrical Engineering/Engineering/C T, 18 April 2007

Ian William Merry was born at Ilkeston in 1926, the younger son of Scots parents, and he died at St Affrique, France, on 18 April 2007, just short of his 81st birthday.
Ian received his secondary education at Nottingham High School, and came up to University College, Nottingham in 1943. He specialised in Electrical Engineering and Electronics, graduating with the London external B.Sc.(Engineering) degree in 1945. But while at College, he also found time for 'cultural' activities, acting in Dram. Soc. productions and editing the Gong magazine. Another keen interest of his was music, as a violinist during his school years, and as a singer throughout his life.
After UCN Ian joined the Royal Navy where he served for two years as a commissioned offiicer. His next post was with the BBC Research Department, working on the magnetic recording of television signals, a technique then in its infancy. After four years there, he joined the London laboratory of Ferranti Ltd, taking part in the development of the Pegasus computer, one of the most innovative and successful computers of its day. One model is still exhibited and in working order at London's Science Museum. Ian's part in this work was mainly in the development of the magnetic drum store, the forerunner of today's 'hard discs'.
Later, he worked for several well-known companies, including IBM, Solartron, English Electric and ICL, and during the latter part of his career, was concerned with developing computer systems for foreign governments.
In 1947 Ian married his College friend, Rosemary Calder, and they had one daughter who is now a retired GP. They lived in Hampshire for much of their married life, but on 
Ian's retirement they moved to Suffolk to be nearer to other members of Rosemary's family.
Rosemary died in June 2004, and following her death, and despite looming health problems, Ian decided to go and live in the Aveyron region of France, an area  that he and Rosemary had found especially attractive. He found a house there in the village of Montlaur, near St Affrique, completely renovated it, and moved in late in 2005. He settled well there, making good friends, and went a long way towards recapturing the intellectual lifestyle of his younger days. It is sad that he was not able to enjoy it for longer.
Old friends remember Ian as 'clever, kind and good company'. In his own words, he had 'a wonderful life'.
The above obiturary was kindly supplied by Dr M Taub (Engineering 1945) and Ian's daughter.

Michael Solomon, Geology, 27 May 2009

Mike Solomon played a leading role in the development of economic geology, both in Australia and internationally. He had numerous achievements during a highly distinguished career, which included his pioneering work with volcanic-associated deposits, which put the Mount Read volcanic arc in the lexicon of geologists around the world. Mike had a desire to test the limits in his academic life, which often lead to new ways of thinking and advances in science. In addition to his many and varied academic achievements, Mike will be remembered for his ability to bring geology alive and make it fun, often joining his students at social events. Many of his students have gone on to become leading economic geologists in their own right, and they, like many others will remember him as a character, a leader, a mentor and a friend. 
The above obituary was supplied by Mike's wife Marjorie and is an abridged version of the obituary by Ross Large that appeared in the SEG newsletter.

Alan G Norman OBE, Civil Engineering, February 2014

My father Alan Norman was a student at Nottingham University 1948-1951. BSc Civil Engineering. He died last year aged 90. After serving with The Hampshire Regiment (he was in the first wave of landings on D-Day where he was wounded several times) he went to Nottingham University as a mature student, his career went from Stanton and Staverley, (Notts) to Redland Pipes (Surrey) from 1968, where he became Technical Director. After Lafarge took over Redland, he worked for The British Pre-cast Concrete Federation in Leicester. A life spent in concrete (mostly pipes and lighting columns). As my brother commented in his eulogy "at one time you were probably standing over or under something he had designed"!
He met my mother when he was in Derby Royal infirmary recovering after the D-Day landings, she is still alive and well, and the living room of her house is still dominated by the print of Nottingham University.
The above obituary was kindly supplied by Alan’s son, Andrew.

Edith Audrey Turner (née Williams), Mathematics

Audrey Turner, aged 82 years, passed away suddenly at her home in West Malvern on 4th February 2015. She is survived by her three children: Alison, Lindsay and Meddon and by her five grandchildren. Born in Tredegar, South Wales, she was brought up in Leicester. She began her study for a degree in Mathematics at Nottingham University at the age of 17 years - young for the time. In 1953, Audrey was the only one of her cohort at that University to receive a First Class Honours degree in Mathematics. After completing her teaching diploma a year later, she taught Mathematics in a variety of schools and became a Lecturer at Worcester Training College. She maintained her keen interest in teaching through tutoring whilst her children were young. The family moved to West Yorkshire when her husband, Ellis, gained the Headship of Normanton Grammar School. Audrey then worked as a Teacher of Mathematics and Further Mathematics at Wakefield Girls’ High School from 1975-1986 where she also fulfilled the role of a sixth form mistress. During her time at the school she acted as an adviser to the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge with regard to their Common Entrance Examination papers, in particular Mathematics. In 1985, following the retirement of her husband, the couple moved to West Malvern where they quickly became involved in the local community. Both became members of St James’ Church West Malvern, where for a time Audrey worked as Treasurer for the Friends of the Parish Church. They developed a keen interest in bowls and bridge at which they were very proficient. Audrey worked part-time at the local St James’ and the Abbey Girls’ School until her retirement. Following the death of her husband in July 1995, after 38 years or marriage, Audrey organised and ran extensive bridge groups at her house through the University of the Third Age. This brought her much pleasure and purpose in later life. Always wanting to keep her mind active and challenged, Audrey was never to be found far away from a crossword or puzzle book of some description. Her other enjoyments included reading books (especially crime novels), visiting the theatre and watching detective programmes. During her close companionship with Dr Roger Morgan until his death in 2004, she became adept at tapestry work and researched her family tree back to 1746. Whatever Audrey put her hand to she did with excellence and dedication and these were the hallmarks of her well-lived life. She was devoted to her family and proud of all their achievements, as they were of her. To all who knew her, Audrey was interesting, clever, resourceful, selfless, reliable and caring. The legacy and the memories she leaves behind will all be greatly treasured. She will be sorely missed.

Obituary supplied by her children Dr Alison Irvine, Dr Lindsay Turner  and Mr Meddon Turner all of whom bear ‘Williams’ as their middle name.

Anthony Wright, Geology, 29 July 2011

The death occurred on 29 July 2011 of Professor Anthony David Wright. He was aged 77. Tony, as he was known to many, graduated from Nottingham University in 1958 with a First Class Honours degree in Geology.Thereafter, his distinguished academic career was spent at Queen's University, Belfast. He began as Research Assistant and then through the ranks of Lecturer and Reader, became Head of the Geology Department (1974-1990) and Professor (1974-1998) He enjoyed a worldwide reputation as an expert in the study of fossil brachiopods and it was his contribution to brachiopod research which the University of Nottingham recognised in July this year by conferring on him the degree of Doctor of Science. Sadly,Tony was unable to receive the degree in person because of ill health.
The above obituary was kindly supplied by a friend of Tony's, Brian Playle.

John Westley, Chemistry, 2011

Dr. John William Westley 75, died December 12, 2011, at his home in Petaluma, California, after a brave and lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer. Dr. Westley was born on February 5, 1936, in the village of Sawston, seven miles south of Cambridge, England. He was the youngest child of Harold Sydney Westley and Daisy Victoria Sorrell. At the time of his birth, his brother Ivan Sydney was 11 years old and his sister Elma was 9. As a young man, he was an excellent student and cricket player. He attended, on scholarships, the Cambridgeshire High School for Boys and the University of Nottingham. He received his B.Sc. degree in chemistry with First Class Honors and the Jesse Boot Prize in 1958, and his Ph.D. degree in 1961, all from the University of Nottingham. In July 1961, Dr. Westley, his wife, Angela, and one-year-old son, Nicholas John, moved from Nottingham to Palo Alto, California. There he worked in the Chemistry Department at Stanford University with Professor Carl Djerassi. After a brief collaboration with J.C. Craig at UCSF, he returned to Stanford to work on a NASA-funded project under the direction of Nobel Laureate, Joshua Lederberg, of the Genetics Department, to look for ways of detecting extraterrestrial life. In 1964, Dr. Westley and his wife had a second son, Peter Miles. In 1968, Dr. Westley and his family moved to New Jersey, where he took a job as Associate Director of the Microbiology Department of the pharmaceutical firm, Hoffman-LaRoche. At Roche he and his department identified, solved the structures of, and biosynthesized antibiotics. In 1972, Chao-min Liu, a microbiologist from Taiwan and the University of Wisconsin, joined Dr. Westley at Roche. In their retirement years, John and Chao-min agreed that their work on Polyether Antibiotics, summarized in two volumes by the publisher Marcel Decker (1976-7), were the most successful collaborations of their scientific careers. In 1985, Dr. Westley left Roche to join SKB, now known as Glaxo SmithKline, in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. There he directed a natural products group of four senior chemists and their support teams, dedicated to the isolation of compounds with potential pharmacological activity from terrestrial plants and marine organisms. Dr. Westley had 110 publications and was awarded 32 patents during the course of his career. Some of the compounds patented improve cardiovascular function and one has potential as an anti-obesity agent. During a summer tennis clinic at Glaxo in 1992, Dr. Westley met a charming young lady, Camille Dixon. He had always intended to retire to California, where both his sons lived. In 1996, John persuaded Camille to move with him to Northern California. They were married in the town of Sonoma on July 27, 2003. Dr. Westley is survived by his wife, brother, two sons, their wives, Monica and Lisa, and four grandchildren, Aidan, Allison, Sydney, and Alexandra. John's love of life, work, family, and friends will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Friends are invited to attend a memorial service Tuesday, December 20th at Adobe Creek Funeral Home 331 Lakeville St., Petaluma, CA 94952. 707-789-9000. Online condolences may be made at

Tribute to Christopher
Former University student Christopher Gibson died March 2008 of a brain tumour, aged 29. Chris graduated from the University of Nottingham July 2000 with a BA Honours Degree in Politics. He went on to study at the University of Luton where he was admitted to the Degree of Master of Science with Distinction in Internet Technologies in 2005.  Chris worked as a Systems Analyst in Leeds until the summer of 2007. 
Throughout his illness Chris remained positive and continued to pursue his passions of travel, green issues, cricket and real ale. During what was to be his final months Chris worked on the web site of Manorlands Hospice, where he attended as a day patient. The Mascot Gold Cup Charity Race held at Wetherby Race Course in April 2008 was dedicated to Chris' memory.  
Chirs will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.  
The above obituary was kindly supplied by Chris's parents Sue and Richard Gibson.
