Memorial meeting for Max Perutz

Cambridge, 21 September, 2002

Max Perutz spoke on mutant haemoglobins at a meeting in the Royal Society in 1969. The warmth, wit, charm and intellectual rigour of his talk were decisive in directing me into crystallography. The recent memorial meeting for Max was outstanding for the inspiring, heartfelt and moving nature of the many tributes to Max, from his colleagues, collaborators, friends and family. The event included a beautiful performance of a Brahms clarinet trio, with Max�s grandson Tim playing the clarinet. John Meurig Thomas, who spoke first in the personal tributes, has very kindly given permission for part of his lecture to be included here. You can read it in full on the BCA Website.
