The Kurt Hoselitz memorial fund

Mr Hoselitz and Mrs Gravelle on a recent visit to Bristol with two current PhD students, Daniel Souza Covacich and Haridas Kumarakuru
The School of Physics was delighted to welcome members of Professor Kurt Hoselitz's family in a recent visit to the university.
Professor Hoselitz was a physicist who made very important contributions in the area of applied magnetism and became Director of Research at Mullard Research Laboratories in Surrey. He came to Bristol as a refugee following the Nazi takeover of Austria in 1938 and was offered a PhD studentship by Professor Tyndall. His son and daughter, Mr Steve Hoselitz and Mrs Maggie Gravelle, have kindly made a donation to establish a fund in his memory that will be used to support PhD studentships in physics. Eligible students will be either refugees, or those who qualify for special support for reasons of hardship.
