Emeritus Professor Frank Evison

On Tuesday night, Geophysics Emeritus Professor Frank Evison died at home after a short illness.

Although I never had Professor Evison as a lecturer (in fact, my transport geography study is the chalk to his geophysics cheese), the close-knit community that is the VUW School of Earth Sciences meant that I had numerous discussions with him in passing, or in the school's staff and graduate lunch room. He always showed a keen interest in my study and research, and is a great loss for the Victoria University Community.

His funeral is tomorrow (Monday) 2:30pm at Old St Pauls, Thorndon. I will be attending, both as Student President, and in a personal capacity.
