Prof Geoff Eustace Blight's engagement with the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) spans over 60 years. During this period he contributed immensely to the engineering profession and established himself as a leading academic, especially in the fields of geotechnical and materials engineering. This reputation led to an invitation to present the Rankine Lecture in 1997, considered the most prestigious invitation bestowed on a geotechnical engineer. In fact, he is one of only three presenters who reside south of the equator.
