Fred Hoyle in the New Cavendish Lecture Hall listening to a speaker. Behind him are Gustav Tammann and Martin Rees, who had replaced Hoyle as director of the Institute of Astronomy. The lack of focus on Rees seems to capture his emergence as Hoyle's successor. The occasion for this reunion was the Conference on Supernovae at the (renamed) Instutute of Astronomy, Cambridge, during July 1981. (See SUPERNOVAE: a Survey of Current Research, M. Rees and R. Stoneham (eds.), D. Reidel 1982).
