Alan Turing: Our September Meeting

After the August break our programme resumes with a presentation by Dean Morrison on the life and ideas of Alan Turing (1912 - 1954). He was an outstanding mathematician, philosopher and computer pioneer, and played an important part in breaking the German Enigma codes during the second world war. The circumstances of his death are still controversial. The previous prime minister Gordon Brown issued an apology for the way he was persecuted by the authorities. A PDF poster advertising the talk is now available to download.


  1. Will try to get to that. in the meantime.

  2. A version of our press release appeared in Hastings Observer on Friday 3rd August page 27 under the heading "Expert gives talk on code-breaker". It included a link to Dean Morrison's "Quockling" website but not to our blog or the contact phone number.
