The LF Power Memorial Lecture is an invited lecture in honour of the memory of Les Power.
Associate Professor Leslie Frederick Power (BCom, BSc, PhD) is remembered by his former colleagues and students for his many contributions to James Cook University and for his special interest in student affairs.
A broad interest in physical science led him to a first class honours degree in Chemistry at the University of Queensland in 1962. In the same year he became one of the first academic staff to be appointed at the University College of Townsville - later to become James Cook University of North Queensland.
He served on the first council of the University and was Dean of the Faculty of Science. At the time of his death he was acting head of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
Les Power died in an aeroplane crash on 26 May 1977 while returning from a North Queensland Electricty Board meeting at Julia Creek.
