"Leslie Hough"

Leslie Hough was born in 1925 in Lancashire. He graduated in 1946 from the University of Manchester with an Honors degree in Chemistry. He commenced research on carbohydrates with Professor (later Sir Edmund) E. L. Hirst and Dr. (later Professor) J.K.N. Jones, took the M.Sc. in 1947 and completed his Ph.D. in 1949. Collaboration with Jones continued when Dr. Hough joined the academic staff at the University of Bristol in 1950. As a Fulbright Scholar he took sabbatical leave in 1952 to study at Purdue University with Professor Roy L. Whistler. When J.K.N. Jones became the Chown Research Professor at Queens University, Ontario, in 1954, Dr. Hough directed the carbohydrate research at Bristol on glycoproteins, carbon-14 tracer studies and the interplay between conformation and reactivity. Research on sucrose commenced in 1956 with the support of the International Sugar Research Foundation (now W.R.S.O.) and continued with Tate and Lyle.
