I have the pleasure to introduce Robert Keith O'Nions, a young man of 34, for the Macelwane Award, not because I have had anything to do with his education and research, but because I was a member of the committee this year, and we both originate from the same country. Keith O'Nions earned his B.Sc. from the University of Nottingham in 1966, traveled to Alberta for a Ph.D. in 1969, became a Postdoctoral Fellow in Oslo during 1970, joined the faculty at Oxford from 1971–1975, and moved to his present home at Columbia University in 1975. When the time came to find a citationist [sic] for him it turned out that his colleagues at Lamont-Doherty, who were the obvious choices, were all at sea—and I admit that this is how I feel when I read some of Keith's papers. In a sense, this makes me well-suited for this introduction, because I cannot spend time explaining his research to you. Instead, I will read to you a couple of paragraphs from his nomination for the award, written by an anonymous friend.
