By Samuel Devons , F . R . S . , Department of Physics , Columbia University . ( With 2 text - figures )
It is a great pleasure to join in this tribute to Professor Norman Feather : My recollections of him as teacher , friend and colleague extend back nearly forty years . I recall attending , as a Cambridge undergraduate , his lectures on ' Properties of Matter ' ( what an archaic and nostalgic flavour that title has now ! ) ; and hearing him describe his pioneering experiments on the properties of the neutron . He was my doctoral thesis examiner ; and later when he was Editor of the Cambridge monographs , it was at his suggestion , and with his help and encouragement , that I made my first essay as an author . I was privileged to succeed my former teachers , Professor C . D . Ellis and Professor Feather , at Trinity College ; and in the 1950s I was regularly and warmly welcomed at Edinburgh , the ambivalent benevolence of my role as ' External Examiner ' notwithstanding .
