*KLAUS FUCHS (1911-1988), studied in Edinburgh under Born and obtained his DSc there. He was arrested on charges of espionage in 1950, sentenced to 14 years imprisonment and released after a little over nine years. He then emigrated to Dresden where he died in 1988. His paper to the Proc. Royal Society in 1936 helped to get him a teaching post in Edinburgh. His first joint paper with Max Born was in 1938 - the above is the second.
