Dedication to Tim Stone

This issue of SCN NEWS
is dedicated to the memory of


Tim was killed on the Ethiopian Airlines crash of November 23, 1996, aged 42. At the time Tim was on a mission to Ethiopia and Tanzania to work on Vitamin A projects in the region.

Tim was a respected expert in international nutrition and health. We knew Tim for his practical, applied approach especially seen in his field work. Tim was a highly committed professional and an esteemed colleague.

The SCN joins Tim's many friends and colleagues in the nutrition field worldwide in expressing condolences to Jean Lash, Tim's widow, and their two small children Claire and David.

The Tim Stone Memorial Award has been established by the Micronutrient Initiative (Ottawa) with a grant from CIDA. This will support the implementation of innovative vitamin A interventions in 12 countries.
