Book Launch of The Life and Scientific Legacy of George Porter

On Monday 30th October 2006, Imperial College Press held a book launch for The Life and Scientific Legacy of George Porter, edited by Professor David Phillips and Professor James Barber. Around 50 guests attended the event, which was held in the lavish surroundings of the Council Room in the Rector's House at Imperial College. The launch began with a presentation by Professor Phillips, covering some of Lord Porter's eventful life, and continued with Professor Barber's presentation of some of Lord Porter's scientific achievements. Both presentations were very well received by an audience including many people, from research students to Fellows of the Royal Society, who had known and respected Lord Porter. It was an honour for ICP that Lord Porter's widow, Lady Stella Porter, also attended the event and enjoyed the presentations given by the editors. The evening continued with a wine and cheese reception and the opportunity for guests to mingle.
