Front Quad of Lincoln College, the walls covered in bright green ivy


Professor Richard Bird (4 February 1943 – 4 April 2022)

20 Apr 2022

It is with great sadness that the College has learned of the death of Professor Richard Bird on 4 April 2022, after a long illness. Richard was a Tutorial Fellow of Lincoln from 1988 to 2008 and Professor of Computing Science from 1996 to 2008. He was a much-admired colleague; our deepest sympathies go to his widow, Norma.

A notice of his contribution to College life will appear in the next issue of the Record. There is a short tribute to him on the Department of Computing Science website.
