Dear prof Gordon
To my great regret, I have to inform you of the death of our deeply respected
former director and revered colleague, prof Pieter Nieuwkoop. He died
wednesday last, Sept 18, 1996. Possibly you had heard already, but I thought
it might important to tell you anyway. Although he had been ill for several
weeks, his death still came very unexpected. His loss is felt very acutely by
most of us here at the institute, and we are all very sad right now.
I am very sorry to have to tell you such bad news, as I am sure we had all
hoped to have him with us for very many more years.
