1960 | Remembering Thung

Thungs death was mourned by many. His colleague and friend, Professor Loes Kerling, aptly expressed this feeling in her ‘In Memoriam’ in Tijdschrift over Plantenziekten: “He devoted his life to his family, his research, and bringing together people of different nationalities and perspectives. (…) We are grateful to have known this man, so full of life and caring – but we have lost a friend.”

The Virology Chair decided to put up an remembrance board in honour of Thung. This board still hangs in the Radix Building.
