I met Professor Richards for the first time in 1951, when I was considering Southampton University for undergraduate studies. He never remembered it, I have. The second time I met Professor Richards was in 1962 in Boston, and then again and again over the subsequent years. I was always impressed by his keen scientific sense and his friendliness, the mark of a great educator, which he certainly was.
