Four distinguished scientists
On 21 March 2013 the science and physics community lost four of their finest in a tragedy beyond imagination.  Drs. John Dunlop, Tony Farmer, Gerry Haddad and Don Price were four great gentlemen, wonderful, dedicated scientists and humanitarians of the highest order.  All had distinguished careers at CSIRO, all influential in bringing to industry new and novel techniques and products.  Even in retirement, they continued to work for the organisation in an honorary capacity making major contributions in the application of advanced physics to solve significant problems in manufacturing industries. They were leaders and mentors in the physics community, inspiring those around them and they enjoyed nothing more than passing on their skills and knowledge to younger scientists. It is fitting to honour their memories through the establishment of a student scholarship based on academic achievement.
