Alex Bain 1948 - 2016 Print E-mail
It is with great sadness that I write to tell you that our colleague and friend Professor Emeritus Alex Bain passed away on the evening of Dec.27th, at home peacefully in his sleep after spending a good Christmas with his family.   

Alex retired in 2008 after a 28 year career at Bruker Canada and our department at McMaster, which he joined as Associate Professor in 1987.  He remained a fixture in the department until just a year or so ago; almost 1/4 of his 160+ career papers were published in the years after his formal retirement.  He was a great friend and enthusiastic collaborator to many of us in our department - faculty, staff, and students alike - as well as others at McMaster and elsewhere.
