2 June 1921 - 18 October 2016
It is with deep regret and profound sadness that we learnt of the passing of the RCSLT's Senior Life Vice President, Sir Sigmund Sternberg, KCSG, GCFO, JP, at the age of 95.
Since the early 1970s, Sir Sigmund was a most loyal and helpful friend to the RCSLT and its members. We owe him an enormous debt of gratitude for all the help and advice he gave the college over the years – not least purchasing its first property in September 1976.
In 1989, Sir Sigmund received an Honorary Fellowship from the RCSLT. His enduring commitment to the RCSLT was recognised once again in 2008 when he received a Special Award for Long Service. In 1996, he established the RCSLT’s Sternberg Clinical Innovation Award with its annual prize of £1000 – a most generous annual gift.
The profession has had many good and helpful friends but nobody has stayed as loyal and steadfast for so long as Sir Sigmund.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this sad time.
