I am sorry to be the bearer of some very sad news: after a long struggle with cancer, Ross Lazar passed away peacefully in Munich on Saturday 22nd July.
Ross was a longstanding OPUS member who gave the 2011 Eric Miller Memorial Lecture. He made a massive contribution to the field of psychoanalysis and the psychoanalytic study of organisations and will be sorely missed.
His death follows the passing of another respected figure in the field: Wesley Carr, whose association with the Tavistock Institute dates back to 1974 and who gave the 2009 Eric Miller Memorial Lecture, died on 15th July after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease and throat cancer.
Our sincere condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of both men.
