The death of Duncan Gordon on November 6, so soon after that of his brother, the Hon. Walter Gordon, has meant the loss of two valued friends and benefactors of Science for Peace. It is through the benefactions of the Gordon Foundation that Science for Peace has been able to operate the national office, including the employment of a secretary to the President this past year and a half.
Grants from the Gordon Foundation have also helped in the holding of several conferences for Science for Peace and in the publication of the resulting proceedings.
Science for Peace wishes to express its deep gratitude for the support it has had and to extend its heartfelt sympathy to the whole Gordon family in their bereavement.
