Obituary: Dr C Sharp
Clifford Sharp, who died on Wednesday, July 16, is fondly remembered by those who remain in the Department
of Economics from the time he was here. Dr Sharp joined the Department in May
1965, became a Senior Lecturer in October 1968, and was promoted to Reader in
Transport Economics in October 1973. He retired in 1983 but continued as an
Associate Teacher until 1986.
He was fully involved with the Department and was always there to help students and to give full efforts to his teaching. At a time when few in the Department were involved with research, he was a leader of the Department's research efforts, supervising
PhD students and conducting his research into Transport Economics.

He was an academic who chose to give full commitment to the University and his Department rather than using his appointment to promote his own self-interest or as a platform to move to more prestigious posts.
