Notice biographique

Born in 1924 in Essex England, Dr. Peter Yates received degrees from the University of London, Dalhousie University and Yale University. After teaching at Harvard from 1952-60, he was appointed Professor of Chemistry at the University of Toronto where he remained throughout his accomplished career. In addition to numerous prestigious lectureships, editorial positions and awards, he was appointed University Professor in 1986 and later University Professor Emeritus in 1990. Believing that his students and his collaborators were testimony to the success of his work, he supervised over 50 doctoral theses. He was widely recognized for his pioneering research in the photochemistry of organic molecules, publishing over 230 articles in refereed journals and a book on the structural implications of spectroscopic data, which became the standard reference source in that field. Dr. Yates died on November 16 1992.
