Ian Noble Tribute
  • Jan van Toorn
  • It is with great sadness that I learned of Ian Noble's death. It took me several days to find the right words to overcome the speechlessness when I got the message from Tony Credland and read Andrew Howard's passionate tribute to Ian. It is long since I worked with Ian and we met regularly but in all cases, whether it was in London or Maastricht, I very much enjoyed his sharp and playful intellect that made critical thinking accessible and productive. It is difficult to accept that he is no longer with us, but I am sure he lives on in our hearts and minds.
