Percy Cyril Claude Garnham, C. M. G. 15 January 1901—25 December 1994

R. Lainson, R. Killick-Kendrick

Elected F.R.S. 1964


Percy Cyril Claude Garnham was born in London on 15 January 1901 and died in Buckinghamshire on Christmas Day 1994, within three weeks of his 94th birthday and only seven days before he and his wife were to celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary. Sadly, his wife Esther died a few months later. His family life was as fruitful as his long and distinguished scientific career as arguably the foremost protozoologist of his day. He and Esther are survived by six children, 19 grandchildren and 30 great–grandchildren.
