William James McHenry Award

  • Charlwood, Matthew (Recipient)

Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)


William James McHenry spent his career as a Laboratory Technician in the Physics labs at Queen’s. Despite a keen intellect and obvious talent for the subject, his personal circumstances prevented him from pursuing an academic career. Nevertheless, he was proud of his work at Queen’s and the contribution he made to the academic achievements of the students and researchers he worked with.

In recognition of this, his daughter, Queen’s alumna Dr Lynn Hulse has made a generous donation to support early career researchers in Physics or Astrophysics.
