Cliff Wilkinson, 1936-2014

18 July 2014

We are sorry to report the death of a former member of staff, Cliff Wilkinson, who died recently.

Cliff Wilkinson came to Lancaster University, to what was then the Department of Operational Research, in 1965, from Liverpool University, where he had been involved in studying bus routing and scheduling. Following his retirement from Lancaster in 1990 he continued to be involved with teaching in the Department of Management Science for another decade. Cliff made a huge contribution to the fledgling department, and will be remembered fondly by former colleagues and many students, particularly those he supervised on Masters projects.
