Obituary:

It is my sad duty to inform you of the death of Dr. Bruce Slee, CSIRO,
Epping, Australia aged 92 years. Bruce Slee was an early pioneer in
radio astronomy. Through his early work the interpretation of the nature
radio sources was made (with John Bolton and Gordon Stanley). He is also
remembered through his work with the Parkes radio telescope and the
Calgoora Radioheliograph. In recent years he conducted observations with
the Australia Telescope Compact Array. Bruce Slee made an enormous
impact on the development of radio astronomy.

An obituary will be posted on the page of the
IAU HISTORIC RADIO ASTRONOMY WORKING GROUP

Sincere regards,

Prof.Dr. Richard Wielebinski
Chair of the IAU HISTORIC RADIO ASTRONOMY WORKING GROUP
Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie, Bonn
