Oleg Alexander Kerensky - a Personal Tribute

To have been invited to pay a tribute to Oleg Kerensky at this, the first Memorial Conference, is an honour indeed. It is an honour which I had no hesitation in accepting, save to the extent that I felt I might not be able to do full justice to it. Oleg Kerensky’s ability as an engineer in the great schemes in which he played a leading role was ever matched by a generous acknowledgement on his part of the roles and skills of others. The breadth of his perception of what was involved for him in service to his profession was matched by a facility to communicate his enthusiasm and sense of high purpose to those working with him and under him. Great forcefulness of character, taking pride in high achievement, was matched by a true humility. Professor M.R. Horne
