This year, in addition to the normal round of departures and arrivals, we bid farewell to some especially long-serving Governing Body Fellows. Jon Austyn, Julie Curtis, and Martin Goodman have collectively served Wolfson for 98 years.

Jon was appointed Lecturer in Transplant Immunology in 1983; he then became Professor of Immunobiology. Julie joined in 1991, specialising in the subversive writers of the early Stalin period, later becoming Professor of Russian Literature. Martin also joined in 1991, with a particular interest in the history of the Jews in the Roman Empire; he too became Professor, of Jewish Studies.

All three have embodied Wolfson's interdisciplinary, collaborative, and intellectually curious character; they have placed their mark on the story of the College. They have each been elected Emeritus Fellow, so we know they will continue to be actively involved in College life. We wish them, and all those who are moving on, great success in their next incarnations.
