Photos - DEng (Hon)

The Tuesday following the opening of the Havelock Memorial, Bill was given an honorary DEng by the University of Canterbury. Bill's acceptance was a public address, "Probing the Planets - My Lifetime in Unmanned Space Research" to 1500 people in the auditorium of the Christchurch Town Hall. This superb photo, taken by Duncan Shaw-Brown during Bill's address, is the best photo of Bill taken on this visit to New Zealand.

Bill was 92 at the time. His stamina wore out many of us youngsters.
