John Maddox 1925-2009

It was with great sadness that Nature learned of the death on 12 April 2009 of Sir John Maddox. He first took over the reins as the editor of Nature in 1966 and served until 1973; he returned for a second stint as editor from 1980 until 1995. During his tenure, he laid the foundations for Nature as it is today, establishing a system of peer review and instituting a strong tradition of journalism. Here we present a series of tributes by his colleagues, and a selection of John Maddox's journalism covering four decades at Nature.
