In memoriam William O’Neil
The IMO Secretariat reported last week that IMO Secretary-General Emeritus William O’Neil passed away on 29 October at the age of 93. Mr. O’Neil was IMO Secretary-General from 1990 to 2003. IAPH had the honour and privilege of having him attend the 1997 World Ports Conference in London, as guest speaker and session moderator. You may fondly remember Mr. O’Neil, as he remained an active member of the international maritime community, even after the end of his tenure at the IMO. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
