Vale Professor Trevor Clifford – A scholar and a gentleman

The world of science lost a great scientist and a true gentleman in the passing of Harold Trevor (Trevor) Clifford PhD DSc FLS FAIBiol OAM, on Saturday 4 May 2019 after a rapid and steep decline in his health.

Professor Clifford was invested as an Honorary Life Member of the Society on 24 March 2017. In his 70th year of scholarly activity, he officiated at the launch of the inaugural round of applications for the Society’s Research Fund, on 5 June 2018. He celebrated his 92nd birthday on 18 April 2019.

The President and many members  attended his funeral on 13 May at Christ Church St Lucia. It was a celebratory affair, as befits a person of such goodwill and scholarly achievements over a long period as Professor Clifford.

The Society sends its condolences to Mrs Gillian Clifford and family. The Society shares their sense of loss of a gentleman and a scholar in the finest tradition and has assured the family that we will perpetuate his memory.
