David Neil Mackenzie passed away in Bangor on 13 October 2001, following multiple complications that resulted from heart disease from which he had suffered for some years. With him, Iranian Studies lost an outstanding representative, whose scholarly competence and interests spanned a broad range of ancient and modern Iranian languages: such comprehensiveness is becoming increasingly unusual in modern times. Several of MacKenzie's philological publications, especially those concerning (New Iranian) Kurdish and the two Middle Iranian languages, Middle Persian and Khwarezmian, have become well established as standard works of reference and will surely remain so for a long time.
