Yesterday, 12th July 2021, the Royal Holloway, University of London, recognised Dr. Brian May CBE’s and Dr. Denis Pellerin’s contributions to the education and research of stereoscopy.
The Royal Holloway conferred Honorary Fellowship to Dr. May and the Degree of Doctor of Literature Honoris Causa to Dr. Pellerin. This is an especially incredible achievement as stereoscopy is often overlooked or misrepresented by academia. The Royal Holloway, an early women’s higher education college, has, however, always been innovative and progressive.
Over the past few years Dr. May and Dr. Pellerin have given talks and workshops about stereoscopy to the Royal Holloway students and staff, including the launch of the London Stereoscopic Company’s Complete Diableries: Stereoscopic Adventures in Hell book and a 3-D talk about the Poor Man’s Picture Gallery, involving several of the paintings from the Royal Holloway’s Picture Gallery.
In this panning stereoview you can just about see the soggy flag in the background, which was raised in honour of Dr. May and Dr. Pellerin’s achievements and who, in turn, fly the flag for stereoscopy every single day. Their generosity with their experience, passion and knowledge inspires and educates so many and I personally can’t thank them enough. I also thank everyone at the Royal Holloway for their involvement!
I know Denis will tell me off for using ‘Dr.’ but we’re all so proud of him and Dr. May.
