Obituary: Professor Richard Davis OBE FRAS
The Royal Astronomical Society is very sorry to learn of the death of radio astronomer Professor Richard Davis OBE, who had been a member of Council from 2012 to 2015. He had hoped to serve on Council again, and was a candidate in this year's elections.
Professor Martin Barstow, President of the Royal Astronomical Society, paid tribute to Richard: "Richard was a charming and engaging man who excelled in research, teaching and technical development at Jodrell Bank. He was an enthusiastic and thoughtful member of the RAS Council and made some important contributions to the work of the society. He will be much missed."
