On 17 February 2013 Tom de Smidt, a friend of all legal historians in South Africa, died in Haarlem (Netherlands) at the age of eighty-nine after a short illness. Because of the Second World War he could only start his academic studies in 1945 and studied law in Leyden from 1945 until 1950. Professor HWFD Fischer asked him to become his assistant in 1947.
