October 23, 2008

Middlesex University's largest lecture hall in its new Hatchcroft building has been named in honour of ex-Middlesex governors' chair Professor Edgar Neufeld. The Vienna-born professor's family fled the Nazis and he was educated in Manchester. His first job was as a research physicist at Jodrell Bank and he went on to become a group director for IBM. Vice-chancellor Professor Michael Driscoll paid tribute to Professor Neufeld's "hard work, wisdom, courtesy and care".
