The RMS Presidium is sad to inform
that the RMS Honorary Member Prof. R. A. Howie passed away on Saturday
10th March. Prof. R. A. Howie was one of the authors of the
famous Rock-Forming Minerals series (Deer, Howie and Zussman). He was engaged
with the mineralogical community and still working (on the third edition of
Introduction to the Rock-Forming Minerals) right up until the time of his death
at the age of 88 years. He will be sadly missed.
