Immortality is granted to those few scientists who give their names to phenomena or constants. In liquid crystal science, one of the best known of these is Sir Charles Frank, who died on 5 April 1998. Sir Charles was much loved and respected by his scientific peers and successors, and those of us who were privileged to know him can still hear his characteristically English incisive tones as he analysed some problem in theoretical physics.
