PhD ceremony

This photo album dates from June 11, 1980, Utrecht University, at the occasion of my PhD-defense and ceremony and subsequent festivities. It gives an impression of traditional Dutch PhD-ceremonies, complete with two paranymphs, here Albert Visser and Hans van Maren, in an awe-inspiring academic environment that scares young promovendi. On the other hand, there is mental support by a room full of family and friends. 

In retrospect, there are the sad memories too. My parents and sister, and also Marianne’s parents are no longer with us, and the same for some dear friends on the pictures.
