Sir Huxley RIP

Andrew Huxley (right) passed away on May 30th at age 94.

Above is a BBC interview with Hodgkin and Huxley shot in my living room in 1985. Wolpert does an excellent job introducing their work to a broad audience. (video)

The Guardian has a good obituary. It’s widely known that obituaries are written for famous people well in advance of their passing. Typically they wait until the subject is in their twilight years, but not always. In this case, the subject, Sir Andrew Huxley, outlived his obituary writer, Anthony Tucker, who passed away in 1998.
