IN MEMORIAM: DR BILL GLENCROSS
10 February 2015
It is with great regret that we must announce the death of Dr William (Bill) M. Glencross.
Bill was a long-standing and well-respected member of the Astrophysics group and worked in the Department from 1963 to 2002. Bill’s research focussed on infrared photometery and mapping, initially achieved by flying telescopes to the edge of space using helium balloons and later through producing, modelling and testing ground and satellite based instruments. Bill loved to teach and served as the Astronomy Tutor twice.
He died peacefully in a nursing home on the 12th February 2015. He is survived by his wife Cecelia and their family. His funeral will take place on the 27th February at 9:45 am at Beckenham Crematorium.
A personal tribute by Dr Ian Furniss has been written for the Alumni pages, please see https://www.ucl.ac.uk/phys/alumni/index
