Read full obituary

Frank Bonsall made an enormous impact on mathematics in North Britain, especially in research and graduate education. Quietly and self-effacingly, he influenced a generation of young mathematicians with the elegance and lucidity of his written and oral expositions, both of his own research and that of others. The quality of his caring and thorough research supervision was reflected in his many PhD students who continued in research.
