Sir Christopher Zeeman 1925-2016

Sir Christopher Zeeman 1925-2016Chris was inspirational, but that feels a bit like saying that Shakespeare wrote plays. I went to University to be at a place that celebrated learning and celebrated humanity, that opened the doors of the mind with ideas that made you gasp, with passionate teachers, and visions to reach for. I met Chris, and he was a University in himself.
