In 2014, four of Emeritus Prof. Peter (fondly known as PB) Beighton's past PhD students decided that they would like to honour him for his leadership and the influence that he had on their professional lives, and collaborated on a project to compile a Festschrift in his honour. They are Prof. Michael Hayden, now living in Canada, the first PhD graduate that PB supervised in 1979, together with Profs Jacquie Greenberg from the University of Cape Town (UCT), Alan Bryer from UCT and Groote Schuur Hospital (GSH), and Lawrence Stephen from the University of the Western Cape (UWC). Prof. Lawrence Stephen was the last PhD graduate that Prof. Beighton supervised before he officially retired in 1999.
