UCT IS saddened by the news that one of its benefactors and alumni, Basil Robinson, has died in tragic circumstances. Robinson, who was born in 1925, graduated with an engineering degree in 1940.
He and his wife, UCT alumna Dr Sue Reznikow, were long-standing Friends of the College of Music. His wife obtained her MBChB in 1944. His brother, Dr Norman Robinson, also obtained his MBChB from UCT (1944).
Robinson made several donations to UCT, including grants to the Health Sciences Faculty and the Baxter Theatre Centre. The University extends condolences to Robinson's family and friends.
