Dr Harry Vine 

Harry Vine, previously a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Geography, died on Sunday, April 11, aged 87. 

Dr Vine joined the University in October 1965 as a Lecturer. In 1979 he was promoted to a Senior Lectureship. He specialised in Soil Science and had an earlier career in Nigeria based on this interest. He was also Tutor for Combined Science students in the final years of his career in the Department.  

Following his retirement in September 1981, he maintained a keen interest in the Department, using the Soil Laboratory for his research on Nigerian soils and becoming a regular visitor, until this year, to departmental Inaugural Lectures and retirement celebrations. He will be remembered fondly by his students for turning the subject of any tutorial topic into a discussion on soils.

Colleagues and friends gathered for a remembrance meeting on Saturday, April 17.

Professor Ian Bowler
