Death of Dennis Shaw, CBE

Tuesday 25 July 2017

The College is very sad to announce the death of Dennis Shaw, CBE. Professor Shaw was Tutorial Fellow in Physics at Keble between 1957 and 1975, and then Professorial Fellow from 1975 to his retirement in 1991. He also held the position of Keeper of the Scientific Books in the Radcliffe Science Library from 1976 to 1991.

Marking his 90th birthday in 2014, Dennis and his wife Joan initiated a Fund to support future Physics students at Keble. This enabled the College to offer fully-funded summer internships for second and third year undergraduates to embark on research projects during the long vacation and to award a book prize for exceptional performance in University examinations.

His funeral will be held at 3:00pm on Thursday 3rd August at Oxford Crematorium.
