Don Law passed away in November last year in Noosaville, Queensland. Don was a giant of the cereal chemistry world as a leading chemist and innovator. Don was at the forefront of the adoption and use of NIR technology in Australia in cereal chemistry and in the feed and fodder industries.
Don was a Fellow of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute, a member of the Cereal and Grains Association and the Association of Analytical Chemists. Don served the Cereal Chemistry Division of the RACI as Vice Chairman (1981-82), Chairman (1983-84) and Treasurer (1994-97). Don was the first Chairman of the Cereal Division’s NIR sub-committee and served on the committee from 1981-85 and was co-chair of a ground-breaking one-day symposium dedicated to promoting the application of NIR technology at the 1984 Cereal Chemiatry conference. Don was a regular attendee and presenter at annual conferences. In 1998, Don was awarded the Divisions Founders Award in recognition of his contributions to industry and the Division.
Don will be greatly missed by all who knew and him and were influenced by his knowledge and leadership in industry. Heartfelt condolences to his wife Mary Ann.
