Jack Schull

We are very sad to report the death of SRP Honorary Fellow Jack Schull.  In 1949 Professor Schull became Head of the Department of Genetics of the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission in Hiroshima at the age of 27 and throughout his career he played a leading role in the various studies of health effects among the survivors.  He made an enormous contribution to radiation science and the field of genetics.  Among his many honours and awards was his election in 1999 as Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the oldest institution of its kind in the USA whose early members included Benjamin Franklin and George Washington.  In 1992, he was awarded the Order of the Sacred Treasure, Third Class by the Emperor of Japan, the highest honour bestowed on foreign, non-diplomatic individuals.

His Honorary Fellowship citation (awarded in 2003) is available here.
