In Memory of Dr Robin Barr-Hamilton


BSA recognise and reflect on the passing of Dr Robin Barr-Hamilton a long standing member of BSA.

Dr Barr-Hamilton studied physics at Liverpool before becoming an audiological scientist at Withington Hospital, South Manchester, working with Denzil Brooks.

In 1984, he moved to the Royal Infirmary Edinburgh to become head of department until his retirement in 2004.

He was a quiet and reserved man, of gentle nature, who read widely and was a great source of advice and inspiration to his colleagues.

He actively supported BSA and was, for example, the organiser of the 1989 annual conference in Edinburgh. He is survived by his son and daughter, John and Judith.
