David G. Vaughan


in General , Monday, February 13, 2023

I heard some very sad news today. An old friend of mine, David Vaughan, from my misspent youth in Cambridge and the British Antarctic Survey has sadly passed away. Since we lost touch years ago, and attempts I made in more recent years to get back in touch went nowhere, I had no idea he was even unwell.

I have nothing but good and still vivid memories of David. I don’t even know his family so I have nobody to pass on my commiserations to. This is the best I can do.

Completely opposite to me, David showed what lifetime dedication and commitment can do, and rose from a being junior summer student (assisting me, of all people) to becoming a leading and internationally respected scientist. He deserved a long, happy and fruitful retirement.
