In Memory of Professor Thomas H. Bothwell

It is with great sadness that I must inform you of the death of Prof Tom Bothwell on Saturday 12th November 2016. He was 90 years old. I hardly need remind you of his seminal contribution to our understanding of internal iron exchange and iron nutrition. The funeral will be on Wednesday 16th November in Cape Town.

I have attached an article which I wrote on the occasion of his 80th birthday on his contribution to iron metabolism plus a list of his publications. Thomas H Bothwell. SCIENTIFIC WRITINGS BIBLIOGRAPHYThe article appeared in Bulletin of the Adler Museum of Medicine. 2006;32(1):18-21. The Adler Museum of Medicine is situated in the Medical Library of the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.
