Consultant haematologist Northern General Hospital, Sheffield, 1948-71 (b Sahy, Czechoslovakia, 1905; q Prague 1929; MD, FRCPath), died after a long illness on 3 March 2002.

A physician at Charles University, Prague, he left his country in 1939 after the Nazi occupation. He returned in 1945, but left again in 1947 after the communist takeover. He was especially proud of his description of Reed-Sternberg cells in bone marrow and his belated promotion to brigadier in the Czech army in 2000. He leaves a wife, Lesley; a daughter; and two grandchildren.
