Abstract Ian Gordon Ross (1926–2006) was educated at the University of Sydney (BSc 1943–1946, MSc 1947–1949) and University College London (PhD 1949–1952), did postdoctoral research at Florida State University (1953–1954), and was a staff member at the University of Sydney, 1954–1967. In 1968, he moved to the Australian National University (ANU) as Professor of Chemistry, where he also became Dean of Science (1973), Deputy Vice-Chancellor (1977) and Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Special Projects) (1989–1990). He was instrumental in setting up Anutech, the commercial arm of the University. He was a driving force behind the establishment of undergraduate and postgraduate engineering at the ANU. His research centred on electronic spectroscopy of pi systems.
