from John Draper

How can a few words do justice to Jon?  We worked closely together when he was Director of the ICN and I well remember our constant battles with the nonsenses of UCL bureaucracy.  I owe Jon a huge debt for his support during the Faculty reorganisation a few years ago and will never forget his constant and unfailing guidance, advice and all-round decency which helped me keep it together through such a time.  I'm not sure he realised just how supportive he was as it was done with his usual understated manner.  Jon, you will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by all of us x
