I was saddened to receive this news about the passing of Brian Vickery,
a pioneer and colleague for over 50 years. We first met at the Dorking
conference in 1957. 


The message I received today is from his daughter Susan

I am writing to Brian's contacts to let you know that Brian Vickery
sadly died on October 17th,.  He died after a few days' feeling unwell,
but otherwise as full of life and projects as ever. He had enjoyed his
91st birthday party the previous month, with all his children ,
grandchildren and great grandchildren


If you feel that an obituary or other form of tribute would be
appropriate in one of the professional journals or other forums he was
in contact with, please get in touch with me


I am sorry to have to give you this sad news


Yours sincerely

Susan O'Halloran (Brian's daughter
