Passing of Prof. R.A. Howie

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.

The mineral howieite was named for him.
