PROFESSOR HJ KOORNHOF – A TRIBUTE AND AN APPRECIATION
Rare indeed are those individuals who combine the qualities of intellectual brilliance with a deep, abiding humanity and a sincere humility. It was John Ruskin who said “I believe the first test of a truly great man is his humility”. Embodying all these virtues is Professor Hendrik Johannes Koornhof, Emeritus Professor of Microbiology of the University of the Witwatersrand.
