In Memoriam: Professor J B Forsyth


We are saddened to learn of the death of Professor J B Forsyth at the age of 91. Bruce Forsyth was a member of our Project Management Committee in the early years of the construction and operation of XMaS, indeed he was responsible for us adopting "XMaS" as the name of the facility. Bruce was trained in the Crystallographic section of the Cavendish Laboratory and went on to become an internationally prominent neutron scatterer and x-ray diffractionist.

His knowledge and expertise helped us to build XMaS the right way for our users over its many years of successful operation. He will be sadly missed.
