Spring Meet 2005
For those of you not already aware, for the past two years there has been a memorial lecture held at the Royal Institute in London, on Douglas' birthday. There is to be a third lecture in 2005, to be held on 10th March, which is an event you should not miss. This event, which commemorates Douglas' work and wider interests, also directly benefits the wildlife charities of which he was patron.

Not 'Done' yet!
Neil Diamond's 'Done Too Soon' consists of a list of people throughout history that died in the prime of life, either being killed while still very young (comparatively) or after having made a significant contribution to the progression of history. The lyrics include 25 names and it was my thought that we could write a small biography for each. You still have a chance to contribute to this project!
