Remembering Sir Harold Kroto

It is with great sadness that we share with you news of the passing of Sir Harold Kroto, a Distinguished Friend of the Migration Museum Project, on 30 April 2016.

Sir Harold Kroto was a Nobel Prize winner, and one of our first and most enthusiastic Distinguished Friends. He spoke engagingly at our very first event at LSE in 2011 about the contribution that migrants have made to science in the UK, chaired by Mr Justice Rabinder Singh, alongside Mike Phillips and Philippe Sands QC. His presence no doubt contributed to the event being heavily oversubscribed, and we had to turn people away at the doors. As our first MMP outing, it was very exciting and gave us a foretaste of the interest that this project was to generate. We are enormously grateful for Sir Harold’s Kroto’s support over the years.
