Department of Zoology


Professor Malcolm Burrows, Head of Department, writes:

Martin was born on 24 August 1928 and was a long time member of the Department.  He was a Frank Smart Prize winner in 1951, then undertook research with Wigglesworth before working at the Marine Station in Naples.  He was appointed a Demonstrator in 1959, a Lecturer in 1964 and a Reader in 1976.  He retired in 1995. Many of us will have vivid and happy memories of Martin.  The legacy of his science, his art and his writing still permeate the Department.
