Luck married in and took up the Chair in Physiology in the new pre-medical course for students at Fort Hare University. Three years later he took up the chair of physiology at Makerere University Medical School in Uganda. Here he became increasingly involved in animal physiology as big game parks in western Uganda were being established and the efficient tranquillising of game was required. Luck established a research team that undertook drug-darting experiments that culminated in the use of M99 and its antidote, a breakthrough in large animal tranquillisation.
In the s, Luck developed his vision for a mobile field laboratory, the first of its kind in East Africa, drawing researchers from the USA, Scandinavia, Germany and Britain. In the late s, Luck took up the chair of physiology at Wits Medical School. He moved later to the Wits Dental School, where there was more scope for the animal research he sorely missed. Here he pursued studies of fruit bats, keeping a roomful of them in his department!
So enthusiastic was he that five PhDs on the unique metabolism of these creatures were produced by his department. Luck maintained his interest in carpentry and wrought-iron work throughout his life. In his fifties he learned Spanish in order to hone these skills under a Spanish master smith. He retired at 60 and set up a forge and carpentry shed from which he produced doors, balustrades and gates. He established a carpentry school and took on apprentices in wrought-iron work. Active in his forge until the age of 80, he was still working in copper at the age of To the end of his life he remained a teacher, ever willing to share his knowledge and enthusiasm with anyone who truly wished to learn.

After graduating Berjak joined the South African Defence Force in but recalled two years later to take up the post of chief medical superintendent at Crown Mines, a post he held until his retirement in Born in London on 25 August , Bridges's interest in gemstones was inherited from his father, who was chief geologist for the Central Mining and Investment Corporation in South Africa. Campbell studied geology and worked in Tanganyika's gemstone mines after graduating. Here his talent for surveying terrain emerged.
He discovered tsavorite in northern Tanzania in , apparently after diving into a gully to avoid a buffalo charge. Despite the nationalisation of the mines in , which usurped Bridges claim to the land bearing his gems, he traced further tsavorite deposits in the early 's.
Tiffany named the gem tsavorite after Kenya's Tsavo National Park, where Bridges had found this truest green gemstone. Bridges prospected for deposits deep in the Tanzanian bush, often living in tree-houses 30ft off the ground in order to escape passing wildlife. In the early days he warded off thieves by draping a python over his stones. Discoveries of deeper deposits enabled commercialisation and he set up a mining base near Nairobi.
Recently illegal miners set up digs on Bridges land and issued death threats, warning the family to leave. Bridges was stabbed in the chest during a skirmish with encroachers on his land.

The sudden death of University of the Witwatersrand palaeoanthropologist, geologist and climatologist Professor Timothy Cooper Partridge [ BA ] was a great loss, Professor Phillip Tobias said yesterday. Partridge died at Balgowan in KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday of a heart attack, a day after celebrating his 67th birthday. His death was a loss not just to his friends, colleagues and family, but to the science he had been associated with for more than 40 years, that of human evolution, said Tobias.
Partridge was a member of Tobias s Palaeoanthropology Research Unit. Also an honorary professor of climatology at Wits, Partridge warned already in that carbon dioxide levels were at their highest in years, and that the amount of energy in the system could lead to extreme weather conditions in the future. He predicted that as global warming continued to account for greater evaporation of water vapour, rainfall would intensify in some areas while drought would ravage others.
His death comes as world leaders meet in Copenhagen, Denmark, to debate their response to the increasing threat of climate change. Their son Apsley died as a young adult. In a separate tribute in the same newspaper, Jordan described their short marriage as having been "made in heaven". At the age of 30, in , Professor Alan Crump was one of the youngest professors ever appointed by Wits University.
Crump died on 1 May , aged As Professor of Fine Arts, he championed the development of the Wits Fine Arts department to rival the best in the country. He believed his staff should be practising artists and recruited young and promising talent to augment the expertise of Robert Hodgins and Neels Coetzee. With his exceptional eye for emerging talent and a reputation for not suffering fools, Crump nurtured students to fulfil their creative capacity. An accomplished artist and curator of contemporary and African art, Crump was involved with the Cape Town and Johannesburg Triennales and chaired the Grahamstown Festival committee for a decade.
A legendary convivial host and guest, Crump loved a great story and a stimulating debate about art, politics or sport. He was an avid student rugby player and athlete, and a consummate pianist. Fearless and driven in his vision for art, Crump once said, When someone dies, it is what they leave behind that counts, the objects and the residue of their thoughts. A champion of primary healthcare training for nurses and the programme coordinator for the Wits clinical associates programme, Dr Andrew Garside Truscott MBBCh died suddenly on 1 December , while vacationing in Mpumalanga.
Born on 28 December , Truscott was a Wits benefactor with deep compassion for the indigent.

Over 30 years Truscott honed his exceptional clinical and teaching skills, training and working with primary healthcare nurses in Soweto. He developed the postgraduate diploma in clinical nursing science and co-authored the widely used Primary Clinical Care manual the Soweto manual.
Truscott always treated his patients holistically and the art of family medicine came naturally to him. He joined the Wits Division of Rural Health in May to develop the curriculum for the bachelor of clinical medical practice degree, launched in January His Christian faith was central in all he did and he served as a mentor to many young doctors through the Christian Medical Fellowship in Gauteng.
Colleague Prof. Ian Couper wrote in a tribute that Truscott was single-minded in pursuing what he believed was the right course of action, yet this was always tempered by care for others and that he gave unfailing encouragement and seldom said anything negative about others. Passionate about nature, Truscott would sometimes disrupt divisional meetings on the 10th floor to point out birds in flight.
