One thought on “In memoriam: John Andrew George (30-11-1945 – 1-11-2017)”
I have fond memories of John George over our years in ORSNZ. I’m sure I’m one of many who enjoyed the textbook he wrote with Hans Daellenbach, which I’m pleased to see is still available from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Operations-Research-Techniques-Daellenbach/dp/0205079741 . Rest in peace, John. Andrew
