In Memoriam E. Chester Ridgway, MD January 18, 1942 – July 31, 2014

The European Thyroid Association was much saddened to hear the news of the loss of Professor Ridgway on the 31st July 2014.

On behalf of the ETA, the Executive Committee would like to offer our sincere condolences to Professor Ridgway's wife and family as well as to the ATA.

Professor Ridgway was a leader in the field of thyroidology for 40 years and made important contributions to the full range of areas of thyroid research from basic science to clinical practice as well as being very much viewed as a "wise counsel". He will be much very missed.
