“Tiger” Thouron, Sir John’s son, was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. He was a dedicated sportsman and conservationist who received the Order of the British Empire in 2003 in recognition of his more than 30 years of service to the Thouron Award. Exuberant and outgoing, he brought a new energy to the program; it was under his stewardship that its mission broadened beyond academia to include the lifelong fellowship, personal connections and international community that characterize it today.
