recent years become aware of this renowned nutritional scientist and have

particularly with respect to human nutrition.
He was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, a great-grandson of the Rt.Hon.
Sir John Sinclair, the great British agriculturalist. His University work
was done at Oxford and his connection with Oxford never really ceased.
In WW II, Dr. Sinclair was deeply involved in nutritional research to help
point the way for sustaining the people of Britain and the recovery of
Europe's starved populace. He was a modern day genius of whom Sinclairs
everywhere might well be very proud. A tribute to him from two colleagues

Sinclair helped to win the Second World war on the home front. As founder
and Director of the International Nutrition Foundation, he became the world
leader in understanding the vital importance of essential fats to human

friend, original thinker, his deep knowledge, sharp with, great intellect,
and brilliant writing and speaking make him one of the great scientists of
