In the last issue of The Messenger (142, p. 51) only a brief obituary of Adriaan Blaauw, the second Director General of ESO, could be included at the time of going to press. There follow three tributes to Adriaan Blaauw: by Tim de Zeeuw, current ESO Director General; by his long-term colleague at the Kapteyn Institute, Stuart Pottasch; and by Raymond Wilson, who led the Optics Group during his tenure as Director General.
