E.H. Collinson (1956–1979).

Edward Howard Collinson had a long professional career as a Suffolk solicitor. His astronomical interests were the planets and variable stars. He was also a pioneer of meteor photography. I knew Collinson quite well in his final years, and visited him several times at his home near Ipswich. His BAA obituary notice gives full details of his life: J. Brit. Astron. Assoc., 101 (1), 12 –14 (1991). (Photo: BAA Presidential portrait.)
