The Heaviside Memorial Project successfully raised funds and completed the restoration of the memorial to Oliver Heaviside and his family in the Paignton Cemetary near Torquay, Devon. Details and additional photos of the unveiling ceremony are available at their web site.
The group, organized by the Newcastle Electromagnetics Interest Group and spearheaded by Christopher Spargo, is on to their next challenge. Their goal is to republish Searle’s 1950 biography of Heaviside. G.F.C. Searle (1864-1950) was a friend and professional colleague of Heaviside and shared many fascinating insights to Heaviside’s character and thinking in his posthumously published biography. The Heaviside Memorial Project is accepting donations to aid in the publication.
