Many of the Trust’s alumni, the first of whom came to study with the support of Dr Anderson and his Trust from 1989 onwards, have gone on to lead successful careers in academia and other fields both in the UK and other countries around the world. Many provided their tributes to the Founder for a privately circulated volume edited by Trustee Elizabeth Gray following Dr Anderson’s death in 2015 (PDF version available here).
