Julia Randall Weertman, on receiving the Materials Research Society’s highest honour, the Von Hippel Award, in 2003, gave a lecture entitled ‘The Pursuit of the Small’, referring to her groundbreaking work on grain boundary cavities and nanocrystalline metals. How satisfying that this pioneering materials scientist, in pursuit of the small, had such a larger-than-life career. Weertman passed away on 31 July 2018 in Evanston, Illinois.
