In memoriam:  Nichalai Swetez

December 2019

It is with great sadness that we had to bid farewell to one of our longest standing and most enthusiastic members, Nichalai Swetez  (lifetime member).

Nichalai was treasurer of the society for over 40 years, and remained on the committee until he passed away in December 2019. Even through failing health, Nichalai attended almost every meeting of the society and of the committee.

Another of our longest serving members, Prof. Gottfried Steigmann, is seen here saying our farewell at the January 2020 meeting.
