Robert Cahn and David Turnbull

Two leaders of materials science died this April: Robert Cahn and David Turnbull. Nature carried an obituary of Cahn by Lindsay Greer (Chairman of the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy at Cambridge), and the latest issue of Science carries an obituary of both men by Roger Doherty (Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel).
