Remembering M S Gore (1921–2010)

A Birth Centenary Tribute

With a humble persona and unmatched leadership, M S Gore was an eminent scholar and administrator. On his birth centenary, his strides in both academia and in leadership positions are detailed.

Gore was a living example of John Henry Newman’s definition of a gentleman: he never inflicted pain on anyone, he was tender towards the bashful and merciful towards the absurd, he never spoke of himself except when com­pelled and had no ears for slander, and he was as simple as he was forcible and as brief as he was decisive. I had the good fortune of working with him for some time and being in touch with him for three decades.
