Remembering George Martin (3 January 1926 – 8 March 2016)
10 March 2016
George Martin KBE CBE, who has just died at the age of 90, was
a prominent supporter of work in hearing research who often gave his time to help promote its importance.
We are both fortunate and honoured that he formally opened the Ear Institute
laboratories in 2006. He freely gave his time to speak at the Ear Institute eloquently on
behalf of Deafness Research UK, then based at our offices, explaining how
his own hearing problems may have been in large measure due to his exposure to
loud sound as part of his work as a music producer.
We send our sympathy to his wife Judy and his children on the passing of an extraordinary man who will be much missed.
